Tussah Silk has a beautiful natural shine and it is very durable. Tussah silk is produced by tussah silkworms and while it is usually a beautiful natural golden tone it can vary from pale cream to a dark rich brown. Tussah silk caterpillars eat oak leaves or other leaves rich in tannin and it is the tannin that gives the color to this silk.
