Little is known about the early history of the Naga people. Ancient Sanskrit books speak of golden-skinned people of the sub-Himalayan region, thought to be the ancestors of the present-day Naga who occupied the mountains 2000 years ago. 

Nagaland is home to several tribes. Each tribe uses bold distinctive patterns with simple  clean lines, stripes, squares, and bands, and has its own specific designs and motifs. This one-of-a-kind saree borrows design elements from the iconic Naga shawls which are a core part of the Naga culture even today. Using motifs and colour combinations that are typical to the tribes of Nagaland, our inspiration is the huge repertoire of designs that each of the Naga tribal groups own.

For our Naga Collectibles, we worked with weavers and craft clusters in Nagaland to recreate drapes that resonate with the primal quality of an ancient tribal culture.

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 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.
