Bourette Silks

Woven or knitted fabrics made of natural or printed bourette silk

Our bourette silks are available in light and transparent, tightly woven or jersey versions. Depending on the version, they are suitable for a wide variety of uses from clothing to interior design and decoration to massage or sauna towels.

Our dyed bourette jerseys have been dyed with vegetable dyes from pomegranate, white mulberry leaves, tanneracacia (catechu) and tagetes. Myrabolan and gall apples were used as mordants. The centuries-old art of dyeing anchors the colors in the fiber in elaborate steps and ensures a color effect that cannot be imitated with synthetic colors.
Bourette silk comes from the short fibres in the outer and innermost part of the cocoon of a mulberry silk moth. It cannot be completely degummed, a small part of the silk glue and cocoon remnants give this silk its special structure and surface. Especially when wet, the silk glue provides the characteristic scent of this material, which fades over time and can vary in intensity. This silk glue is said to have a natural healing effect that is anti-inflammatory and soothes the skin, especially in Ayurvedic massage gloves.

The matt yarn has an irregular, slightly nubby structure and is much fuller than smooth silks, it is hard-wearing, warms well and is easy to dye or paint.
