Microchecks require attention to detail both along the warp and the weft of the fabric. The warp must be passed through the reeds of the loom exactly so that the colours in the fabric alternate. Weavers use a two-shuttle loom in order to alternate between the colours in the weft at very small intervals, bringing this subtle texture.
Indigo - Malkha’s trademark colour, made by dipping yarn in indigo vats up to nine or ten times. Naturally dyed indigo is impossible to ignore, demanding the gaze of all who see it.
Kora - Exemplifying beauty in simplicity, kora is the unbleached off-white that comes from cotton's most natural form. A trademark of Malkha since our inception.
Anar - The colour of pomegranate peel, dried and then boiled. Anar is one of the oldest dyes known in the subcontinent.
