The fabric development of Arts & Science original fabrics is the core of our A&S craftsmanship. In this feature, we will focus on the fabric, “Linen Tusser Silk,” which has a rich expression with its three different colors and slubbed textured surface.

Linen tusser silk is made by alternately beating thick linen single threads in the warp and thick spun silk and tusser silk, called “Mahayana yarn,” in the weft yarn. Mahayana yarn is hand spun from dried cocoons of silkworms raised outdoors on a diet excluding mulberry, including sara and arjun trees. They are then steamed to a wadded-like state. The unevenness and slubbed texture created by the use of Mahayana yarn gives the surface of the fabric a unique expression. The fabric has a natural brown color and a rustic luster.

We welcome you to come and to see the items made of “Linen Tassel Silk,” in person. This special A&S original fabric characterized by the gradation of three different colors: linen yarn, silk yarn, and Mahayana yarn.
