Madras

| What is madras?

A lightweight, hand woven cotton fabric with a plaid, striped or checkered pattern that’s made with semi-permanent vegetable dyes known for bleeding to give it the soft, muted colors it’s known for, although madras are also commonly patterned with plaid, stripes, and checks. Originally, madras fabric came from the region of Madras, India. A textile can only be called madras if it comes from this Indian region. Madras is often used to make shirts and dresses.
