The Tussah moth is one of the only moth that emerge from their cocoon by forcing themselves out of the top of the cocoon without breaking the single thread that makes it.  As a result they are farmed in a way that allows them to turn into a moth and hatch. It is only after hatching that the tussah silk cocoons are harvested so they can be spun with and then hand woven into these beautiful shawls. It is for this reason it is called a non- violent silk because the silk worms are farmed in such a way that they are allowed to become a moth, and not give their life for their silk.
