Wild Silk Cushion Cover - Striped

45.00

Wild silk comes from the cocoons of silkworms that live in forests or tree plantations. Much of it is produced in the tribal areas of Eastern India, where it provides a source of income and an incentive for people to conserve the forests. 

Wild silk comes in various natural shades of brown, beige and gold, reflecting the different leaves that the silkworms have eaten. Its threads are shorter than conventional silk, which results in a 'slubby' fabric with a subtle pattern created by the different thread lengths, thicknesses and colours. 

Our wild silk products are made in North-East India by a cooperative that has been practising silk weaving for generations.
