Are you new to handloom or if you have a keen fascination towards them. Reading along will surely help you understand the distinct style of Tussar Silk or Raw Silk Sari. Some basics first, every Saree has 3 distinct parts in handloom (ikat): Body, Pallu or Anchal and the border, but to understand Tussar, we need to pay attention to the fabric of the saree.
Tussar Silks Saris in Odisha have a variety of styles ranging from Sambalpuri Ikat weave, Habaspuri and more. Each of them will vary in its borders and patterns, but the fabric of tussar will be consistent. What is Tussar, you may ask? The answer is Tussar silk is 'raw silk', enhanced with a weft and cut shuttle technique handwoven by weavers from Jajpur, Odisha (mainly). The raw silk has a dull lustre and unevenness in its sheen, which is favoured by many handloom lovers. The saris are usually light and among the favourite in our Banker and Teachers. With us, you will find that some are Ikat weave sambalpuri tussar, and some are Tussar silk with Block prints. Both are unique in their design and style. We do have a lot of interesting collections, which we suggest you do explore, but before you do, have a look at the vibrant of Tussar silk. Enjoy!
