Tussar Silk – Indian Tussar is copperish in colour and highly textured. Tussar Silk also known as Kosa Silk in Sanskrit is produced from larvae of several species of silk worms belonging to the moth genus Antheraea. These silkworms live in the wild forest in trees belonging to Terminalia species and Shorea robusta as well as other food plants like Asan, Arjun, Jamun and Oak found in South Asia.
Tussar is valued for its rich texture and natural deep gold colour. India is the exclusive producer of Indian Tussar silk saree with bulk of it being produced in the Indian states of Bihar and Bengal. A large quantity of it is produced in Bhagalpur in Bihar, where it is called Bhagalpuri Silk. Tussar Silk is also used for Orissa’s Pattachitras and West Bengal’s Kantha stitches.
