The Story of the Lost Ancient Fabric
The Story of the Lost Ancient Fabric
Two centuries ago this ancient fabric was 26x more expensive than silk. It was worn by the Mughal Emperors, the Romans, Marie Antoinette and even Jane Austen wrote about it. For the last 200 years, no one has been able to make this fabric.

Dhaka muslin, also called Dacca muslin, is a very fine, woven cotton fabric from Bangladesh that was described as early as the third century CE. It was especially prominent during the Mughal Empire from the 16th to 18th centuries and was worn by emperors and French queen Marie Antoinette. Some called it "woven air" or "the skin of the moon".
