Ghicha Tussar

This is Ghicha Tussar with block print. Ghicha is a variant of tussar silk. It is basically a type of tussar silk yarn that is produced from pierced, cut damaged and double cocoons. It is durable shrinkage free and little rough in texture. It is produced mainly in Bihar, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand. I have quite a few Ghicha in my collections. This is one of them. It’s a simple but elegant looking saree with block printed border and anchal in ganga jamuna style. It is paired with matching blouse and silver colour jewellery. It has been purchased from my friend’s boutique.
