Abstract:
Silk the queen of textile still remains unconquered among different fabrics, both natural and man-made. India has the unique distinction of being the only country producing all the five kinds of silk - Mulberry, Eri, Muga, Tropical Tasar and Temperate (Oak) Tasar. Though India is the second largest silk producer in the World after China, it accounts for just 5% of the global silk market, since the bulk of Indian silk thread and silk cloth are consumed domestically. Germany is the largest consumer of Indian silk. Over six million farmers are involved in sericulture in India. The sericulture industry is land-based as silk worm rearing involves over 700,000 farm families and is concentrated in the four Southern states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Thelungana (The states of Assam and West Bengal are also involved in the industry to a certain extent).
