100% cotton muslin. Muslin is a cotton fabric of plain weave, which is one of the three most fundamental types of manual textile weaves. While muslin is strong and hard-wearing, it was once a luxury fabric and although it is commonly believed that the cloth originated in the Iraqi city of Mosul, it is now understood that the cloth likely originated in ancient India.

Historic Materials

Muslin (Mulmul)

As a very fine cotton, muslin (called mulmul in India) used to be a prized import from India during British rule. Coming from handspun cotton, which is an artisan-focused industry in its own right, it is a thin, breathable, almost weightless fabric that gets softer with each machine wash and tumble dry. Our artisans weave the threads in a “plain weave” technique that is both incredibly soft, yet sturdy enough for long-lasting wear.
