Inspired Weave uses numerous varieties of silk, such as tussar and matka, which are aboriginal to India and processed and spun by hand without the use of harsh chemicals. For example, tussar silk is a wild silk categorized by an asymmetrical yarn with thick and thin percentages, creating a “slubby” or exceedingly surfaced fabric.
