Wild Tussar Silk & Cotton Scarf - Black Warp


Gorgeous handwoven scarf where the handspun wild tussar silk is woven in a herringbone twill weave structure with a black cotton warp. Tussar is a wild silk from a moth that lives in oak and jamun forests in India and South Asia.  It has a very different look from traditional bombyx mori silk. The leaves the caterpillar eats gives tussah its natural golden colour.  It is hearty with a dreamy golden lustre. The cloth has the tussar predominantly on one side and is anchored by the black cotton on the other. We love how this fabric drapes.
