Our tussah silk is produced by a wild caterpillar that lives mainly in China, India and Korea.These feisty caterpillars have thwarted all efforts by humans to domesticate them. Regardless of where they live, the leaves they consume contains tannin. Tea also has tannin--that is what stains your teacup a light tan color. And this same tannin in the leaves gives the tussah silk its natural honey color.
