Made popular in China thousands of years ago for its luxurious quality, mulberry silk comes from the Morus Alba tree. Mulberry silk is made from the cocoon of the Bombyx mori moth. Before metamorphosis, the caterpillar feeds exclusively on the white mulberry leaf—this is one of the reasons why this silk is known for its second-to-none quality.
Produced in only a few countries, tussah silk is perhaps best known as a wild silk that is collected in the forests of India and other countries in South Asia. This golden-hued silk is different from cultivated silks – it is more textured and spins up into a yarn with a bit more loft to it. This loft provides exceptional breathability in warm weather as well as insulation in cooler weather, creating woven fabrics that are comfortable to wear in nearly any season.
Cotton is made from the natural fibres of cotton plants. It is primarily composed of cellulose, an insoluble organic compound crucial to plant structure, and is a soft and fluffy material.
