Katan silk, as a concept, originates from Persia and came to India during the rise of the Mughal Empire. Women belonging to the Royal families indulged in silk purchased from China, Persia and even parts of India, such as Benares, in order to weave stylish and elegant garments. As recorded by Inayat Khan in  Shah Jahan Nama, the royal women were known for wearing elaborately designed clothes in fabrics like Katan silk. Furthermore, they were known for wearing at least 2-3 different outfits in a day and clothes, once worn, were handed to the servants for their use. Through this practice, fabrics such as katan silk were filtered down all the way to the subjects of the empire and were popularized due to their sturdy nature.

             Royals like  Nur Jahan Begum were also known for designing and popularizing new fashions and designs, which made these fabrics all the more desirable amongst the subjects of the empire.

           Creating katan silk requires a series of meticulous steps to be followed to ensure that the highest quality of the fabric can be achieved.

To start with, the silk yarns are first prepared. Tough and, more often than not, yellowed yarns of silk are first steamed and then treated with chemicals in order to make them soft and malleable. On doing so, three or four plies of the treated yarn are then spun together on a spinning wheel where they are twisted and made ready for the loom.
