This 16"x18.5" wild cocoon silk Sunburst Mosaic Panel was artfully created using two different species of wild silk cocoons. They can be used as decorative tabletop accessories or hung on your wall for a beautifully vibrant aesthetic
These non-woven cocoon silk panels are handmade in northeastern Madagascar using the cocoon silk of the Ceranchia and Bombyx silkworms. The wild-gathered cocoons are collected using a sustainable no-kill process that allows the silkworms to complete their natural life cycle. The Ceranchia Dense wild silk textile used to make these panels is made from the lustrous but opaque inner layer of the Ceranchia cocoon. The Bombyx wild silk textile used to make these panels is made from the smaller Bombyx cocoon.
The non-woven textile is made by stitching the cocoons together using a clear filament that disappears in the texture of the panel. The cocoons used here are dyed in vibrant colors using eco-friendly dye. The dyes used are color-fast.
These panels were 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.
Each Non-Woven Wild-Gathered Cocoon Silk Panel is unique and a one of a kind. If you would like to purchase multiple panels that coordinate or work with your specific décor send an email with your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Every effort to accommodate will be made.
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.
