WHY HANDMADE FABRIC?
At Monsoon Weave we are dedicated to supporting the handicraft artisans of the developing world. We believe that a piece of handmade fabric is an artwork demonstrating a superior level of skills, which have been learnt and passed within a family from generation to generation. This traditional skill is what keeps a family employed and within which their identity is interwoven. Time, deftness and precision are required; and the final cut piece is slightly unique from every other piece. It is fabric with culture and history interwoven.

COTTON CAMBRIC, VOILE and POPLIN - WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
Good question. In a nutshell:
- voile is translated from "veil" in French. So assume that it will be very lightweight and somewhat sheer when back-lit.
- Cambric is a slightly heavier and less sheer fabric than voile, but still has that lovely softness due to the way that it is woven. Like voile, it falls beautifully, and is light and soft for summer clothing.
- Light-weight cotton poplin can be a similar weight to cambric but will feel more coarse than cambric.
- Cotton poplin is used for quilting and craft-making and is generally a little bit heavier again.
