Nathan Nagar in Bihar is the main city where Bhagalpuri silk is in vast numbers, and is famous all around the world, that India is the second largest producer of Bhagalpuri silk.The city of Bhagalpur is currently bestowed with over 35 thousand skilled craftsmen and 25 thousand looms, which makes it one of the prime cities that produce premium quality silk fabric in India. 


The yarns of the Bhagalpuri silk are weaved with silk threads that are naturally achieved from the Tussar cocoons. The exotic colours and the finest texture of the silk threads are from nature itself. That is why it is rightly called the Queen of all Silks. The silk threads are segregated from the Tussar cocoons and the yarns are spun and weaved to form the Bhagalpuri fabric. Being one of the oldest art forms of India, it is an environment friendly silk, because only a limited number of silks are used during the production of the Tussar silk  and hence called as “Peace Silk”.

silk worms bhagalpuri

The silk which is used for making Bhagalpuri fabric are obtained from the silk worms belonging to the moth genus which feed on the leaves of the Arjuna trees. Once they grow and reach a particular stage they start forming cocoons all over them. 40% of their bodies contain larvae from which silk threads will be yielded. These trees on which the silkworms live and feed are constantly cut and kept short as these silkworms have a tendency to move in the upward direction and if they go up they are more likely to become prey and get eaten resulting in less silk production. After the cocoons are collected they are taken for silk production. Firstly the cocoons are tested for any type of allergy or irritants and are boiled in water. This process helps to loosen up the threads. 

Next step is the pre-weaving. This work is usually done by women. During the earlier days, threads were manually rubbed on the thighs for reeling. Nowadays, with the advancement in technology, machines are used in the process of reeling.


The threads are then sent for the dyeing process. Initially natural dyes extracted from vegetables and flowers were used to dye the threads which have been replaced by chemical dyes. Bhagalpuri sarees are dyed in vibrant colours like red, brick, orange, yellow, blue and green making them suitable for traditional occasions. Finally these dyed yarns are fixed onto the looms for the weaving process and we get the final product.
