An enchanting masterpiece, this silk cotton mekhela sador showcases Miri motifs of the Mishing tribe and a blissful floral pattern throughout the body. The detailed border is a testimony to the artisans of this region.

The Mishing or Mising is one of the largest ethnic groups of Assam. It's not know exactly where they migrated from, but it is popularly believed that they were dwellers of the hills of present day Arunachal Pradesh. This explains the cultural and linguistic similarities they have with many tribes in Arunachal Pradesh.

We provide complimentary finishing services (fall, edging and hand done tassels) with this set.

All TSC products are handcrafted from scratch, using the finest materials. The subtle variations in colour, texture and finish are intrinsic to hand made products. Our products involve crafts-based traditions of hand spinning, dyeing and weaving.

Care Instructions: 

  • Dry clean only.

  • Store your Assam silk saree in the breathable cotton dustbag we provide with your purchase.

  • Avoid exposure to moisture as zari (if used) 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.

    Disclaimer: Product colour may slightly vary due to photographic lighting sources or your monitor setting.
