Bhor

‘Bhor’ meaning the first light, woven in subtle gradients of the early morning sun, exploring Odisha’s famed tussar Jala work.

Wild tussar silk is mostly cultivated and hand reeled into fine tussar yarn by women in Coastal Odisha. The highly skilled tussar weaving communities of coastal Odisha, with their famous extra weft motifs of fish and rudrakah in Jala techniques, have earned the patronage of Rajas in the past. Vriksh has been doing extensive research and developing new weave constructions to make softer tussar sarees and stoles combining it with different natural yarns.
