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 is valued for its texture and natural gold colour, which is unusually rich and deep.
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.
Traditionally, Tussar was dyed only with natural dyes – but with time, the range of colour and motifs has increased dramatically, thanks to the introduction of chemical dyes.
Raw silk taken directly from the filature is too fine to be woven. Before it is woven into fabric, it goes through a series of operations which conditions for the loom. They do this by hand-reeling the threads onto a wooden spindle to produce a uniform strand of raw silk.
Raw silk is typically a short fiber silk recycled from spinning silk and has a strong odor due to impurities in the yarn.
The raw yarn’s natural coloring is light beige to bright yellow. The more refined the silk and the smaller the yarn, the more it resembles the look and feel that we know as silky.
Slight imperfections of the weave in the fabric are characteristic of raw Thai silk. The imperfections make raw Thai silk stand out from machine made fabrics.
