Tussar - Kantha
Tussar Silk is also called as wild silk, as it is obtained from the wide-winged moth, a superior variety of a worm, which yields a good quality of silk. They have special mirror-like wings, which are highly lustrous, which are available only in parts of North-East India. This gives a special effect to the saree and makes it perfectly unique. The rural art, which was once confined between the families, and the villages, have captured a great market share, and over the past few decades, it has even garnered more audiences. The Kantha work is a special art, where the women form Bengali used strands of thread and colorful border to med their sarees. The thread work would run all over the saree, giving it a different look and feel, and a difference, where the simple saree will be changed into a stunning art piece. The subtle golden tint in the saree perfectly makes it corporate wear, which can be worn to the festivals too. Many sarees come with small motifs, and designs, which makes it highly amiable. There are sarees with great embroidery, woven motifs, and even beaded sarees, which accentuates the beauty of the saree.
