Burn-out textiles is a technique used to develop raised designs on fabric surface.This is primarirly being done in fabrics with atleast 2 different fibre content i.e Cotton-Polyester , Silk-Rayon etc.Here one fibre component is being dissolved thru chemical reactions while the other content remains intact giving away raised illusion designs.
