Charisma of Tussar Silk

If you own even half a dozen Nehru Jackets, we won’t be surprised at all if a Charismatic Tussar Silk Jacket is one of them. From family functions to weddings, men wear Tussar Silk Jackets with absolute pride. But while these Jackets are easy to come by, not many men know enough about this variety of silk. So if you already own a few or are planning to buy a Tussar Silk Jacket, there’s no time like now to learn all about them.

  1. Desi Tussar silk are also known by the Sanskrit name, Kosa Silk. They are made from silk that is produced from silk worms that breed on wild forest trees, not mulberry trees.
  2. A lot of India’s Tussar silk Jacket production happens in Jharkhand & Bihar. In fact, the silk weaving industry in this region goes back over a century! Hence, Jharkhand Silk Jackets are just as popular.
  3. Tribal women who are trained in the art of Tussar Silk weaving can produce about 10 metres of the silk cloth in around three days.
  4. Though cheaper than mulberry silk, a genuine Tussar silk Jacket will still cost you anywhere between Rs.3000 to Rs.4000.
  5. While Tussar is more textured than mulberry silk, its shorter fibers make it less durable. That said, the porous fabric makes Tussar a comfortable choice even in our warm Indian summers.
  6. Tussar silk Jackets have a natural dull gold colour, which make them a great choice for Indian weddings. We wouldn’t be surprised if you already have a few embroidered Tussar Jackets with nature-inspired motifs in your own wardrobe.
  7. Tussar silk Jackets are delicate and need to be dry cleaned only. Store them in muslin bags to allow the fabric to breathe.
  8. The test of a genuine Tussar Jacket is to burn the edges slightly. If it smells like burnt hair rather than just leaving a solid residue, you know you have an original.
