Celebrating Silk Responsibly

About Silk n Dye Festival

The thought behind: Wild silks in Assam are obtained from the cocoons of silk moths. A cocoon consists of fine fibres which are converted to yarn and used to make fabrics. Traditionally, yarns were dyed with flowers, leaves, roots, seeds and other natural elements of colour. Over the past few years environment concerns have increased the demand for naturally dyed products. The Silk n Dye festival, organized by Janambhumi Janakalyan in association with YCSD and Earth Craft, seeks to give silk weavers of the region a platform to showcase their products and introduce an age old tradition of silk farming and natural dyeing to the world.

Know about Wild Silk

Silk, also known as “The Queen of Textiles” is the strongest natural fibre. Protein secreted by the silk worm to create cocoon is converted to a fine fibre, which is then hand reeled to form yarn and hand woven into a lustrous fibre. Assam is famous for its indigenous wild silk which is lustrous, smooth and with an affinity for dyes.
