Soft, shiny, with lots of beautiful texture from the Sari Silk.
The original Sepia colour comes from the Cuttlefish. As a defence system this cephalopod can produce a stream of ink to let it escape from predators. Sepia ink, harvested from the ink sac of the cuttlefish was used for centuries as a writing ink and also by artists. Later the ink was used in early photography to make the silver based prints more stable.
Colour Description- Brown-black with streaks of silver grey.
This range of fibres will use the same fibre composition, and the collection will rotate through different colours and collections over time. Some colours will be restocked, and others may be temporary to allow space for other colours. Even if a colour is restocked the nature of the sari silk means it's unlikely that the next batch will be the same "dye lot". If consistency is going to be vital for your project please bear this in mind.
