Artisan Clusters


Matka Silk is a rough handloom silk fabric made from the waste Mulberry Silk (Bombyx Mori) without removing its gum (sericin) part. It is largely obtained from the states of Karnataka and Kashmir but its spinning is done in the Malda and Murshidabad districts in West Bengal.

Anuprerna is closely working with Matka silk artisans from ten clusters located across the districts of Murshidabad and Burdwan in West Bengal.

Since it is produced from cocoons without killing the pupae inside or without sacrificing animal life, it is  called Non-violent silk, Ahimsa Silk or Peace Silk.
