Mashru silk fabric is an exquisite mix of cotton and silk fabrics, with cotton in the vertical yarns and silk in the horizontal yarns. Derived from the sanskrit word "misru" meaning mixed, mashru silk has a satin like finish, giving the fabric a rich and soothing appearance. While this was a widespread fabric in India, ranging from Bengal to Lucknow to Gujarat a few decades ago, currently only a few small towns in Gujarat practice the weaving of mashru silk. It is most commonly found with Ajrak block prints giving the age-old art a new silky texture.
