  • ECO FABRIC TUSSAR SILK INTRODUCTION: Eco fabric tussar silk is a non – violent alternative to commercial silk. Eco fabric tussar silk is made by collecting the cocoons after the silk worm has emerged out of the pupa. The cocoons are not commercially farmed but are collected by tribal communities residing in the forests. Tussar silk, thus sustains the environment and the communities. Tussar silk lacks the luster of commercial silk and shows slubs or impurities.
  • BACKGROUND: The silk worm spends part of its life cycle inside a cocoon it spins from its own secretion. Commercial silk is made by boiling the cocoons while the worm is still inside. For this reason, commercial silk is shunned by vegetarians, vegans and anyone against cruelty to animals. Tussar silk is a non – violent alternative to commercial silk. Termed non – violent or Ahimsa silk by Mahatma Gandhi, wild silk or tussar silk is made by collecting the cocoons after the silk worm has emerged out of the pupa. The cocoons are not commercially farmed but are collected by tribal communities residing in the forests. Tussar silk, thus, sustains the environment and the communities. Tussar silk is less lustrous than commercial silk and shows slubs or impurities. These characteristics add to the handcrafted look and the understated elegance of tussar silk. Tussar silk fabrics are sought after by eco friendly designers. Tussar silk is an ethical and sustainable alternative to commercial silk
