The designs on this fabric come alive on our made-in-heaven mul sarees through an intricate process known as screen-printing. This process involves the usage of a mesh-screen made of synthetic polymers that is strung onto a metal or wooden frame at high tension. A stencil with the negative image of what is to be printed is placed beneath the screen and emulsion is applied to create a positive image that lets the dye seep through the screen. The dye is then applied on the fabric through the screen to print the desired image. Every design for screen-printing is made with a live-sized screen and each colour of printing requires a separate screen.So, the process of printing gets more and more intricate with addition of more colours in a design.It also makes the work of artisans more laborious as a result. The screens that are created for printing are stored with utmost care to keep them safe from damage or distortion.The lengthy procedure and the many steps involved become worth it when the beautiful final product is created. The base fabric for these sarees is the forever-favourite made-in-heaven mul.
The mul cotton is what we call ‘made in heaven’ at Suta. Known in West Bengal as mul mul, the fabric is buttery soft and delicately beautiful. The weave of this fabric is very fine, and this lends a very fluid texture to it that makes draping it a breeze. It is truly like a hug that wraps you in its love!
