Wild Silks

Handwoven tussah silk from India

Wild silk is made from the cocoons of the Tussah silk moth. The natural colour of the fibre ranges from beige to dark brown.
Here you will find natural wild silk of different weave and thickness.
The massive industrialization of India leaves less and less room for textiles with a high proportion of handicraft, such as these wild silk fabrics.
With a small hand-woven collection of tussah silk we would like to continue this old tradition.
The Tussah or Tussar silk used for this purpose comes from the wild oak silk moth. After the caterpillars have hatched, the cocoons are collected, combed and spun and woven by hand. The knotty structure is typical and gives it this unique, almost archaic appearance.
