Ode to Tussah (with apologies to Pablo Neruda)

 

The silk

with its imperfections,

gorgeous, perfect

on the loom.

Made slowly

by hands

which remember across

the generations.

The worm,

now the moth,

spreads its wings

rides the wind:

and the silk,

transformed

bears the child and knows it is good.

 

 

 

If you know your textiles, you know tussah. Gorgeous, complex, the sort of textile in which you see something new with every glance.

Our new Luxe Collection has six slings made from wild tussah–Azure, Flor, Mother of Pearl, Rioja, Sandstone, and Verde. Wild tussah is an eco-friendly silk, made from the cocoons of wild silk moths after the moth emerges. Our specially sourced tussah is traditionally woven with hand dyed silk threads. The result is a sumptuous textile, strong but soft, and with beautiful prismatic hues. Sustainable and simply irresistable!
