Muga is unique in having a golden sheen and is a prized possession of India. Muga is largely restricted to Assam and other north-eastern states and recently spread to West Bengal. About 80% of the silk produced in the country is of mulberry silk, majority of which is produced in the three southern States of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu followed by West Bengal and Jammu & Kashmir. Mulberry sericulture is practised since time immemorial in the North Eastern Region (NER). The tropical Tasar silk is produced largely in the central India covering the tribal areas of Jharkhand , Chhattisgarh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Orissa, etc. Oak Tasar is produced in Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland, Uttarakhand, Jammu & Kashmir, etc. Eri is grown in Assam and the adjacent north-eastern states, Bihar, West Bengal and Odisha.
