Graceful and Elegant Tussar Silk Saree
Tussar silk is one of four types of raw silk grown in India; the others are Mulberry silk, Eri silk, and Muga silk. Tussar Silk, also known as 'Wild Silk,' 'Tssar Silk,' and 'Tussar Silk,' is a luxurious fabric spun from the cocoons of a moth with broad, brownish-yellow wings. West Bengal, Jharkhand, and Bihar are the biggest producers. Silkworms from the wild and exotic regions of the world are used to create Tussar sarees.
The raw silk sarees are manufactured in lighter colors like cream, beige, and brown, and then dyed with deeper colors to give them a rich appearance. Tussar sarees, a type of jute saree, are typically combined with other materials to increase their vibrancy and comfort, such as cotton, wool, or linen. The border and pallu of a tussar saree, which is often a natural colour like honey or milk, are embellished with exquisite embroidery. The body of the tussar silk saree may be adorned with geometric patterns and kantha stitches, both of which are common in modern designs.
For those interested, Desi Tusser is known as Kosa Silk in Sanskrit. Tussar, which is mostly manufactured in India, derives its highly sought-after gold hues from three different species of the genus Antheria: Antheria Paphia, Antheria Milita, and Antheria Proylei. When it comes to Tussar Silk, its origin and historical context are shrouded in mystery.
Tussar, a type of silk, can be further subdivided into categories such as Katia, Ghhichha, Thigh reeled, and machine reeled. After some more switching and combining, we get two new types, the Tusser Ghichha and the Mulberry Ghichcha.
Because of their versatility, Tussar sarees can be worn as is, painted with a kalamkari or madhubani design, block printed with a sanganer or dabu print, or used as a base for any number of other sari designs.
Silk is a luxurious material that requires special handling due to its high cost. Dry cleaning is preferable, however with care, some silks can be washed by hand. Always use shampoos and cleansers (such as Genteel and Ezee) that are low in alkalinity. Never use a brush on this fiber because of how rough it is. Ironing silks requires extra attention. Always place a damp muslin towel over the silk before steam ironing. Further, watermarks can appear on silk if water is sprayed directly onto the cloth.
Rich Comfortable Tussar Silk Handloom Sarees
Tussar silk, in contrast to other types of silk, has a much more textured appearance. In addition to being far more breathable and light than other fabrics, this variety is also much more porous, making it cooler. Tussar is more comfortable to wear in warmer climates than other types of silk since it is less hot to the touch. Pure Tussar silk handloom sarees are comfortable to wear year-round, but the artificial versions available on the market can be very irritating to the body in warm temperatures. A pure silk saree is an investment that will always pay off in the form of luxurious comfort and refined elegance.
