FAQs

Which fabrics are best for kurtas in summer?

For summer kurtas, choose lightweight, breezy cotton fabrics like voile, cambric, or cotton muslin that enable airflow to keep you cool and comfortable. 

What kurta fabrics are suitable for winter wear?

Choose woollen fabrics, silk, cotton-silk, and cotton-wool blends that are toasty while remaining breathable for winter kurtas.

How can I choose the best Kurta fabric online? 

Before making a purchase, consider fabric density in GSM, shrinkage, composition ratios such as 80% cotton and 20% silk, and sizes available based on your dimensions and customer ratings.

What kind of fabric is best for printed kurtas?

Pure cotton, particularly mulmul, is the greatest foundation for printed kurtas because it absorbs colours well, resulting in crisper, brighter prints that remain longer through washes. 

Which kurta fabric needs the least amount of ironing?

Natural fibres such as pure cotton, mulberry silk, and khadi are crease-resistant fabrics that require less ironing than synthetics.
