Novel Applications of Silk Nonwovens in Living Enclosures

Abstract

The silkworm is one of Nature’s marvelous architects. It builds a safe and comfortable cocoon for itself while it transforms into pupa and then moth. The cocoon consists of silk proteins which of late have been found to have remarkable properties like UV protection, thermo tolerance, biocompatibility and biodegradability. This has inspired a large number of applied researches on silk for biomedical and other technical applications. This paper discusses novel applications of waste silk nonwovens for creating luxurious living spaces for the comfort of man.
