Violet/Black Raw Wild Silk Rustic Handloom from India. Tussar 2-2/3 Yard Piece. #3173
Natural wild raw silk handloom, from certain species of uncultivated, wild silk moths in India, whose silk makes fine, glowing tissue tussar. Handwoven, the warp is black, the weft brilliant violet/purple with lots of slubs and striations. This silk is amazingly thin, a bit sheer and almost like drapey, supple paper. The iridescence turns black and magenta, with rich violet. Textile lover's dream! Stripes run crosswise, from selvedge to selvedge. Dry clean or test first then handwash cool and air dry. India.
