What is Raw Silk?

Silk is an umbrella fabric that envelops a number of variants ranging from smooth and slippery material to uneven and coarse fabrics. Mostly spun from the cocoon of mulberry worms, it is one of the most expensive fabrics in the world and is strongly associated with affluence and luxury. Raw silk is a slightly rough yet lustrous fabric which contains sericin (gummy substance). While obtaining yarns from the cocoons, short filaments that are left behind are put together by twisting and joining to make longer yarns that are further processed to weave fabric. The end product has an uneven surface with little nubs scattered all around and this fabric is known as raw silk.

An Aesthetic Appeal: For women who like to have a varied wardrobe, raw silk works as a style breather adding flamboyance and glamour with its uniquely aesthetic appeal. The imperfections on the fabric only enhance its beauty as the uneven structure of the yarns tends to reflect more light. This appealing fabric is used to make heavy lehenga cholis that reflect the grandeur of the Indian textile heritage. The fabric is strong enough to hold heavy embellishments like rhinestones, beads, zardozi and patch-work thus making it a bridal favorite too. Designers like Sabyasachi, Manish Malhotra, Anita Dongre and many more use raw silk extensively in their runway collections. A cold shoulder raw silk blouse paired with an embellished flared lehenga and a heavy net dupatta would make a beautiful outfit for an Indian wedding.

Taking Indian textiles to the world: India is the second largest producer of raw silk in the world. Indian handlooms produce the finest quality of this fabric that is exported throughout the globe and is widely used for making garments, accessories and artifacts by leading brands and designers, thus enhancing the value of the Indian handloom industry.
