The fine fabrics of mashru and himroo are the clear examples of their highest level of weaving art. The fabric which looks like golden cloth is regarded to be one of the finest of its kind.

It originated with the ornamentation of royal swords and other weapons, and was later applied to domestic use in items like cigars and cigarette boxes.
