Double-Layer Sile Fabric

Ogma double-layer sile fabric is made of 100% cotton. It owes its unique qualities to its special production process. Traditional sile fabric is obtained from 20 numbered twisted crepe yarns. In the first stage, the ropes or skeins called “Kelep” are treated with a special flour paste called “çırşı” in copper cauldrons and boiled with sea water. This process gives the threads their strength and sheen. The cooled skeins are dried on poles and cleaned of paste residues. After the yarn is spun, traditional Şile fabric is woven on special wooden looms. These looms are hand and foot-operated by the artisan weavers to create flawless cloth. The most interesting and characteristic stage of the fabric production is the washing of the fabric with sea water and laying it on the beaches to dry. It is thought that the iodine and quartz in the sand give the fabric its special sweat-proof properties. Since completely natural methods are used in its production, it is a very environmentally friendly product.
