Naraina is a lotus silk fabric by the erithi from a specific type of saltwater lotus.

In addition to the typical freshwater lotuses, Atan Irith boasts the only known saltwater lotuses. The stems of these flowers tend toward a softer, more supple weave and hints of their unusual silvery green coloring dot even the best dye job, creating a unique material called naraina. The term naraina is only used for lotus silk woven from the saltwater lotus found on the Lotus Sea, and its exportation has been strictly forbidden. At long last, the leaders of Atan Irith have allotted a small amount to be exported for special occasions.

Naraina is considered a rarer material as of 2021. Because of this, it requires fodder when used in alterations. See alter fodder for more information.
