Store your Assam silk saree in the breathable cotton dustbag we provide with your purchase.
Avoid exposure to moisture as zari tends to react to weather changes.
Air your Assam silk saree from time to time and re-fold to avoid creasing at the same place for an extended period of time.
We use both natural/plant-based and azo-free commercial dyes with the goal of minimising our impact on the environment while striving for the best colour properties. An irregular weave is not a defect - handloom by definition means uncertainty when it comes to uniformity.
