Katan Silk Saree


Photo Curtsey: Adi Mohini Mohan Kanjilal
Katan, a thread, prepared by twisting a different number of silk filaments according to requirement gives a firm structure to the background fabric. Katan is a plane woven fabric with pure silk threads. It consists of two threads twisted together and is mostly used for the warp of light fabrics. Due to the nature of its creation, it also makes an interesting textured background for any work that is to be done on the fabric to make it unique. Katan silk is one of the most easily identified fabrics as it has a unique look that helps it stand out from other forms of silk.


Katan can be further classified into the following:

Katan Butidar: This fabric has resham or gold butis on it.
Katan Butidar Mina: The design work on this fabric is made out of zari threads.
Katan Butidar Paga: This type has a weft made of resham and contains buti work that is spaced 4 inches apart all over the body of the garment.
Katan Brocade: Figures or patterns on this garment are made with goldthread and both, the warp and weft are made of katan.

The most popular forms of katan these days are the Katan Stripes and Katan Checks as they add a little bit of modernity to the design.
