All TSC products are meticulously handcrafted from scratch, using the finest materials, one piece at a time. Our products involve crafts-based traditions of hand spinning, dyeing and weaving. Due to this process, there may be a variation from one item to the next. Such variations are inherent in the manufacturing of handmade products, so you may expect minor distinctions that will make your purchase special and truly one of a kind.
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.
