Tussar silk has a rich coarse texture. It is very comfortable to wear even in summer as it's more porous and breathable in nature. It's very light and stiff in structure. Tussar silk sarees are made from silk that is produced from silk worms that breed on wild forest trees, not mulberry trees. They are very delicate and have a natural dull gold sheen to them. The deer 🦌, squirrels, rabbit 🐰, giraffe, zebra and other animals are hand painted on to the saree which makes it an extremely rare piece. The borders have a rich gold shine to it too.
