Wild Muga silk is a variety of silk produced by Muga silkworms, only in the state of Asam in India. This is one of the rarest silks in the world.

 

This amazing organic silk has been obtained in a sustainable way. The cocoons used to make silk yarns were heat-treated only after they were safely left by silkworms. Made without the use of chemicals, thanks to which the yarn has a stronger buttery smell. It is also known as Peace silk.

 

Once made only for the royal family, today it can be part of your luxury fabrics.

 

Muga silk is often compared to expensive gold. Is the desired element of wedding attire in India.

 

It has a very pleasant structure with a good balance between tackiness and slipping.

The delicate golden colour is ideal for use in the natural or dyed form.
