The state of Bhagalpur is commonly known for its magnificent textured silk. It is also known as Tasser silks. In the fabric industry, Tusser silk is said to be one of the oldest forms of a traditional art form as it is named after the dying style used for silks. The silk is not produced from mulberry-eating silkworms. Instead, it is extracted from cocoons of a distinctive species of silkworms. These silkworms are widely presented in the forest and on the leaves of trees. The tusser silk is also known as wild silk as it is produced by those silkworms which are wild and present in the exteriors of the forests. Hence, it is said to be the most natural and pure form of embroidered silk.
