Historically donned by the royal families of Assam, this Muga silk mekhela sador is the perfect piece for a rich, regal and distinctively traditional look. Regal Gomcheng motifs, which is said to be associated with the Ahom kingdom, in undyed Eri silk adorn this gorgeous classic.
Muga silk, indigenous to Assam, is recognised by its characteristic golden sheen and richness. It is one of the most rarest silks, owing to the fact that it is produced nowhere else in the world but in Assam. It is also one of the most expensive silks in the world. Being expensive, however, has no bearing on its popularity as Muga remains one of the most desired silks across the globe.
This is a handwoven piece, unevenness in the selvedge and weave could be expected.

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.
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.
