Book - In Search of Wild Silk by Karen Selk

Price: $39.95

The long awaited book by Karen Selk, founder emeritus of Treenway Silks, is here!

Karen was captivated by the many wild silks of India, ever since her first visit, back a few decades ago.  Karen has made it her life's work to learn about wild silk in the jungles of India and the village industry that processes it and keeps it alive.

This book is 272 pages and weighs in at just over 4 lbs!  There are hundreds and hundreds of beautiful color photographs and stories of Karen's adventures navigating India and connecting with the villagers who are hands-on wild silk sericulturists. 

This is a marvelously researched text book covering the wild silk industry, including Tasar, Muga and Eri silks.  There's no other book on silk that is as comprehensive or as entertaining!

Our copies of "In Search of Wild Silk" are arriving today (April 7, 2023) and the special cardboard mailers will arrive middle of next week.  We expect to begin shipping books in a week.

note:  as always, our shipping estimate is high.  if the only thing you are purchasing is this book, we will send it Media Mail and the postage will be approximately $6.50 in the USA. You won't see this in checkout, but it will be applied when a human (me) finalizes your pending cc charge, once your book is in the mail.
