About Kibira Linen
The linen used is called Kibira. It is different from normal linen because it is produced using traditional techniques, where the threads are made by cutting the linen stock and soaking it for 1-2 days. This soaking process will not only remove the dirt on the surface of the stock but also splits the stock into fine threads and joint them back together. The presence of the black and white color streaks on the thread on the finished product is due to sun exposure. Parts of the stem which are exposed turns black, while the inner part of the stem produces white threads.
