                                                           It is pronounced ‘sheetaahh’. This fabric first came to Brazil with the Europeans in the 1800´s. Originally from India, it was improved and after a long financial, cultural and bureaucratic process it started being produced in Brazil too. Low costs of production turned it into a very popular icon. From clothing to decoration it is sometimes highlighted on catwalks, art galleries, shop windows and stages.
