This incredible 14"x72" panel is made with three different kinds of cocoon silk from two different species of silkworm. This non-woven, open weave cocoon silk panel is handmade in northeastern Madagascar using the cocoon silk of the Ceranchia and Suraka silkworms.
The intricate details of this piece come together to form a beautiful, one-of-a-kind panel with a rose gold theme. It can be used as a table runner or centerpiece or hung as wall décor.
The first section of this panel (pictured at top) is undyed Ceranchia Dense cocoon silk, made from the lustrous but opaque inner layer of the Ceranchia cocoon. The rose-colored sides of the panel are made from naturally-dyed Ceranchia Dense cocoon silk, while the inner section of the panel is pleated undyed Ceranchia Open cocoon silk. Ceranchia Open cocoon silk is made from the translucent outer layer of the Ceranchia cocoon. The last section of the panel (pictured at bottom) is made from the dark, earthy Suraka cocoon.
This non-woven, open weave panel is handmade in northeastern Madagascar using the cocoon silk of the Ceranchia and Suraka silkworms. The wild-gathered cocoons are collected using a sustainable no-kill process that allows the silkworms to complete their natural life cycle.
The non-woven textile is made by stitching the cocoons together using a clear filament that disappears in the texture of the panel. Some of the cocoons are left natural in color and some are dyed in vibrant colors using eco-friendly dye. The dyes used are color-fast.
This panel was sustainably sourced and made in Madagascar by CPALI, a conservation and poverty alleviation NGO in northeastern Madagascar that invests in local leadership, community ownership and linking these partners to global markets. 100% of the profits from Ta’na’na Silk are returned to Madagascar.
Care: Hand-wash only, warm or cold water. Hang on line to dry. Iron with steam iron on low-heat setting and place a pressing guard sheet over the silk to protect it while you iron.
