The golden silk is not only a nature's gift to Assam, but also a symbol of rich Assamese culture. It represents the brilliance of the traditional attire of the region. Reputed to be the second most costly silk after Pashmina, Muga silk looks like spun gold, and for 600 years only the Ahom royal families of Assam were allowed to wear Muga silk.
The golden hue of the fabric improves with every wash. It's no wonder that Muga silk, today, is one of the most sought-after silks.
