Mulmul is a soft and fine weave of cotton which is also known as muslin. Almost around 100 years ago when Bengali weavers first weaved it, Mulmul cotton fabric was one of the prized imports from India to the lands of England and Scotland. It started appearing in the market there and then gradually the countries of the continent started manufacturing it. Dhaka in Bangladesh, a part of India back then, was the first place where Mulmul was originated. Under the Mughal rule, Dhaka became the capital of the worldwide muslin trade. During this time, when the trade of Mulmul was flourishing, the Britishers aggressively tried to repress it. Since the industrial manufactured and the imported fabric could not compete for the supreme hand-woven counterpart in India, the Britishers decided to wind up the production and knowledge by cutting off the thumbs of the craftsmen.
The production of Mulmul almost suffered for about two centuries. Gradually it got revived and now it is available easily. It is also not so expensive as it used to be. The fabric is super soft, lightweight and very breathable. It is great for summers, especially in the harsh summers as it quickly absorbs moisture and keeps the user at ease. It gets softer with every wash. It is easy to wash and easy to wear. The fabric can be dyed easily and when stitched into garments, it turns out to be a very easy-breezy and elegant furnishing to your home.
