Tussar Natural Silk Scarf
This scarf is made of hand-woven raw “Tussar” silk, a fabric with richer texture and more sheen than traditional silk. A series of hand-embroidered pearl-drops and an eye-catching lattice fringework make this perfect for a cocktail party, or as a special gift.
TECHNIQUE: TUSSAR SILK WEAVE
Tussar is a form of wild silk that is traditionally harvested by tribes in India’s western states of Orissa and Bengal. Traditionally used to make saris for special occasions, it has found everyday use in recent times. Bloom&Give has paired raw Tussar’s naturally complex texture and sheen with subtle zari (metallic thread) embroidery to create this special scarf. We are especially partial to this fabric because it sustains a 1,000 year old industry that continues to provide precious livelihood to thousands of rural tribal woman, who play a key role in the production process. This scarf is made in small batches by a women-owned co-operative.
