These shades are hand dyed by artisans using an ancient technique from Japan known as shibori. The Tussar or wild silk is produced from larvae of several species of silkworms belonging to the moth genus Antheraea. The silk which has been tightly gathered to produce the undulating pattern has a wonderful crinkled quality which adds to the texture of the silk.
