Luxuriously handcrafted Kesa Paat (raw mulberry silk) mekhela sador in eggplant accentuated with mogor (paisley) motifs, each motif individually woven in cement grey and coral Eri silk, and a stitched border typical of Assamese drapes. 

Mekhela Sador is the traditional Assamese drape worn by women in Assam. Traditional, Mekhela Sadors were made only from Muga, Paat and cotton. However, nowadays modern low-budget sets are made with varying blends of Eri, Muga, Tussar or Paat silk with Assam handloom cotton.

Made from: 100% pure Kesa Paat (raw mulberry) silk 

Sador: 2.80m (approx.)

Mekhela: 1.80m x 2m (approx. circumference)

Blouse Length: 1m (approx.)

Number of man-hours to weave the saree: Approximately 56 hrs. (5-7 days)

Note: The blouse seen on the model is only for representation. Set includes an unstitched blouse piece.

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 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.
