Madras Clothing: Pants, Shorts, Skirts, Dresses & More
Madras is one of our signature fabrics at Country Club Prep, and is Longshank's absolute favorite print. Based on an article about the fabric, "Original madras was made using vegetable dye and featured plain cotton muslin embroidered and printed in different patterns, using rice gruel as an adhesive, and black, red, and blue as primary colors." Also, "
Madras gets its 'bumps' or thickening of the yarn, from not being able to be combed before weaving, on account of the material being so fragile."
