TUSSAR SILK SAREES ONLINE

 

Tussar silk’s elegance

Also known as kosa silk in Sanskrit, Tussar silk is obtained from a species of silkworms belonging to the moth genus scientifically known as Antheraea Paphia. These silkworms are found in wild forests in trees of Terminalia species and Shorea robusta. The magnificent Tussar Silk is admired for its natural gold deep colors and rich texture in countries like India, China, Japan, and Sri Lanka.

 

The story of Tussar silk

The Tussar silk’s history dates back to the medieval times. Jharkhand is the largest Tussar silk manufacturing state across India. It is mostly produced by the tribes located in the eastern part of India and has been their forte for decades now. Highly skilled women are prominently involved in making of Tussar silk fabric. To manufacture a 10-metre tussar silk cloth, three days of hard work is required. Often referred to as the ‘wild silk’, this fabric is the true definition of beauty.
