Tissue is made by weaving zari into the fabric's structural weft together with any yarn in the warp. This weaving process produces a rich and luxurious fabric with a shimmering gold or silver appearance. It was traditionally made from silk but is also commonly made from polyester and other synthetic fibers. It is generally used for bridal wear and special occasions. Tissue is a unique fabric, not just for its luxurious appearance but for the intricate craftsmanship that goes into weaving the zari and other yarns together.
