Bhagalpur in Bihar, India, famed for its exquisite Bhagalpuri silk sarees in Tussar and Dupion Silk, has taken the world of fashion by storm.
The Bhagalpuri Tussar silks
Tussar Silk Sarees, also known as ‘Kosa’ Silks, are made from silk of the moth genus Antheraea. Known as ‘wild silk’, it comes from the forests of Jharkhand and the raw silk has a deep golden colour and of good texture. Tussar Silk staples, shorter and less expensive compared to that of cultivated silk, have the cocoons boiled to make the silk cocoon extraction process easy. However some weavers prefer to allow the silkworms to leave the cocoon before boiling , and is popularly known as Ahimsa or non-violent silk . The woven Tussar Silk Saree is light on the body, airy and has a comfortable feel about it. Hand-woven Tussar Silk Saris are well known for their zari borders, motifs and the hand crafted designs that enrich them. Hand spun and coloured with vegetable dyes, the fabrics produce are eco-friendly. Tussar Silk Sarees with fancy block prints, batik, Bandhani work on the Silk body and appliqués or embroidered patch work accompanying it, are beautiful creations. Stylish north Indian half and half tussar silk saris having kantha embroidery and banarsi border are eye-catchers. Well-suited for Indian weddings, and as bridal attire!
The fine Dupion Silks online of Bhagalpur
The Bhagalpuri Dupion Silk Saree has a charismatic appeal in its weave. Natural uneven lumps of the silk yarn, maintained in the fabric weave form an intended pattern that is unique and appealing.
Dupion is also known as Dupioni or Douppioni. Dupion Silk is one of the purest silks in its natural form. It is easily distinguished from other forms of silk by its inherent property of lumps or silk knots within the yarn fabric.The inherent qualities of the Dupion Silk Saree makes it suitable for dyeing the yarn to any colour, is comparatively easy to sew, and is highly wrinkle-resistant. The creases on the fabric form so well that it assumes a crisp and neat look. The uneven weave with nubs (lumps of yarn) showing at regular intervals form an unconscious pattern indicative of an underlying design. Double cocoons are reeled on the Charakha, or hand-spinning wheel. But with the Dupion Reeling Machine being introduced, the Dupion Silk Saree woven with two threads apart from the nubs create a shimmering effect. Dupion Silk Sarees though low priced compared to pure silk sarees get better priced with adornments of pearls, beads, kundans and sequins and are much-preferred wear for wedding ceremonies.
