The fabric that you hold in your hand is a fragment of the forest, uninhibited and liberated. It is Tassar or “Wild Silk”.
The timeless beauty of Tassar (Kosa in Sanskrit) has captivated people’s imaginations for centuries. This exquisite yarn is obtained from silkworms reared in the wild forests on local species like Sal, Asan and Arjun, making it a true representative of the flora of a place. Interestingly, in Odisha, it is produced by tribal communities living in Keonjhar, Mayurbhanj and Gajapati.
Tassar is highly valued for its natural dull gold colour and its property to refract two different shades of a colour at different angles. Over the years, several variants have been introduced by blending tassar with other yarns. One such variant is the famous Tassar Ghicha fabric which uses reeled tassar yarn in the warp and tassar ghicha yarn in the weft. The Odia moniker “Ghicha” means to pull or drag. This yarn was traditionally prepared by women by hand by reeling the silk using a thigh pad. The yarn was drawn from pierced, cut and thin shelled tassar cocoons, including those discarded after the emergence of the moth. As pupa is not sacrificed, Ghicha silk is also sometimes referred to as “Ahimsa Silk”.
Traditionally, Ghicha yarn was considered a by-product of tassar industry and weavers of Odisha were producing low end “Chaddars”. Gradually, the yarn reelers have mastered the skill of producing finer ghicha yarn. This has created a new segment of luxury products such as sarees, stoles, material for dresses, shirts, furnishings etc.
Tassar Ghicha silk is an eco-friendly product as it uses the waste material left over after the unbroken filament has been used for spinning the yarn. This also attributes it the trademark rough texture. It is also more porous, and therefore, feels lighter and cooler than the other varieties of silk.
