Our occasions range is a mixture of colours and eloquent detail allowing you to play around with accessories…the main fabrics used are silks…Here are a few facts to reassure you that purchasing a silk Abaya is definitely a worthwhile investment…



Silk fact number 1… Besides its luxurious softness and lustrous beauty, there are various other benefits of silk that other fabrics, whether natural or man-made, simply cannot match. These advantages of silk have rightly earned silk its reputation as the queen of fabrics.  Aab says If ‘Why Silk?’ is still a question in your mind, the following benefits of silk should remove any doubts. It is not just a question of comparison with other fabrics, some of these benefits and advantages place silk in a league of its own.”



 Silk Fact number 2… Because of its natural protein structure, silk is the most hypoallergenic of all fabrics. Aab says Natural fibers means  a natural route to remedy problems without harming our habitat”


 Silk fact number 3… An all-climate fabric, silk is warm and cozy in winter and comfortably cool when temperatures rise. Its natural temperature-regulating properties give silk this paradoxical ability to cool and warm simultaneously. Silk garments thus outperform other fabrics in both summer and winter. Silk worn as a second layer warms without being bulky – Aab says Aab loves this feature of silk…garments that look bulky lose elegance! Silks 912191-1431-365x426allow the Abayas to flow naturally and add beauty to attire without even trying!”


Silk fact number 4…Silk is highly absorbent: it can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling damp. Silk will absorb perspiration while letting your skin breathe  Aab says Something we are sure a lot of ladies will be happy to hear and rush to wear…it’s perfect for those long summer days!!”


 Silk fact number 5… In spite of its delicate appearance, silk is relatively robust. Its smooth surface resists soil and odors well. Silk is wrinkle and tear resistant, and dries quickly.. While silk abrasion resistance is moderate, it is the strongest natural fiber and, surprisingly, it easily competes with steel yarn in tensile strength…Aab say… Which is why these fine fabrics are ideal for our occasions range” 

Silk fact number 6…Cleaning and washing silk is surprisingly easy if certain precautions are observed.  All garments are appropriately labeled to include silk washing instructions. We recommend hand washing silk, unless the garment carries an explicitly Dry Clean Only instruction –

 Aab says “Optimal silk care will ensure longer and lustrous life of the garment. We, therefore, recommend hand washing silk even for items that are labeled for machine washing.”
