Silk, the name resonates with elegance and opulence. These fascinating features make this brilliant fabric “Queen of textiles”

Sericulture in India

With minimal capital requirements and the lucrative nature of production, from rural on-farm and off-farm operations, sericulture is practiced across several states of India. India is the second-largest producer of raw silk in the world and sericulture provides livelihoods to numerous farmers. Karnataka is the highest producer of raw silk in our country followed by Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Assam, and Jammu & Kashmir.

Arunachal Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Manipur, Odisha, Punjab, Tripura, Uttarakhand, and Uttar Pradesh are other states that produce a small amount of mulberry silk.

Despite the profitability potential sericulture industry holds, it faces several problems that deeply impact the production of silk. Lack of know-how in mulberry cultivation, meagre profits, improper disease management, delay in the supply or unavailability of disinfectants, pesticides, and more factors add on to the list of problems.

ReshaMandi, with meticulous efforts, is mitigating the problems faced by the stakeholders of the silk supply chain.

Journey of silk fibre to fabric

Sericulture is the production of silk and rearing of silkworms. It includes cultivating mulberry leaves that are used to feed silkworms. Silkworms are reared to produce cocoons that are further used to spin the yarn. Yarn is then used to weave exquisite silk fabrics.
