Mulberry Silk Jacket: The silkworm by the name of Bombyx mori, produces Mulberry silk. The name of the fabric is derived from the leaves of the mulberry plant which are used to feed the silkworm. This type of fabric is one of the highest qualities of silk available. The cocoons formed by the Bombyx mori are spun into raw silk threads and yarns. This form of silk makes up about 80% of the total silk produced in West Bengal. Mulberry silk has a long history in the state while its exact origins in Bengal remain unknown, it was one of the leading items in the international trade of goods. The cloth is famous for its durability, smoothness, and lightweight quality. The uniform, antibacterial and scentless silk is known to be the “King of silks”.
