What is tussar silk?
Tussar silk is a type of silk that is prized for its rich texture and natural gold colour. While most silk varieties are produced by silkworms that feed on mulberry trees, tussar silk is produced by worms that feed on jamun, oak and other wild forest trees.
Tussar silk is also known as kosa silk or desi tusser. This silk is usually made from silkworm cocoons that have been collected from forests, so it is also called forest silk.
