Tvaca (त्वच) refers to “(human) skin”, according to the Kularatnoddyota, one of the earliest Kubjikā Tantras.—Accordingly, “That, O goddess, is said to be the subtle (form), now listen to the gross one. [...] She makes the Great Sound (of mantra) and, very powerful, she makes (the worlds) tremble. She is powerfully penetrated by the bliss of the Command and, wearing a human skin as a shawl and (human) skin (as clothing) [i.e., tvaca-parīdhānā], she resides in the sequence of the eighty-one (syllable mantra). O fair one, such is the visualized form (dhyāna) there will be in the aged state. The Vidyā here is Mahāmāyā whose form is sixteen syllables”.
