Tussah Silk

Add Texture to Your Fabric

Tussah Silk, also known as wild silk or non-mulberry silk, is a type of silk that is produced by several species of wild silkworms, primarily found in the forests of India, China, and Southeast Asia. Tussah silkworms are not reared on farms like the domesticated silkworms used to make conventional silk; rather, they forage on wild plants for food.

What Makes Tussah Silk Special?

Tussah silk has a distinctive texture and appearance compared to traditional silk, with a rougher, more irregular texture and a range of colours from light beige to dark brown. It is also stronger and more durable than traditional silk, making it ideal for use in heavy-duty textiles.

The Uses of Tussah Silk in Textile Making

Clothing, scarves, beddings, and upholstery are just a few items that are frequently made from tussah silk in the textile business. In order to make fabrics with distinctive textures and qualities, it is frequently combined with other fibres, including cotton or wool. High-end fashion also uses tussah silk to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind outfits because of its distinctive texture and natural differences.
