TUSSAR SILK X VISCOSE WITH SLUB 44" NATURAL WHITE COLOR BY THE YARD
Tussar Silk, also known by its Sanskrit name Kosa silk, is produced from Tusser
silkworms (Antheraea mylitta and Antheraea proylei). Produced mainly in the
Indian state, Jharkhand,Tussar Silk is a type of wild silk – it is obtained from silk worms that are not
bred on mulberry trees but whose cocoons are collected from the local trees like
Sal, Arjun and Saja. It is less expensive than cultivated silk and not as
durable (cultivated silk has longer fibres). Some Tussar silk today is made is
called non-violent silk, or Ahimsa Silk, which is extracted from the
cocoon after the silkworm larva has left it.
The saree is the most important tussar silk product although it is also used as the base material for handicrafts, furnishing fabrics, and stitched apparel. With the introduction of chemical dyes, the range of available colors has increased significantly.
