A meticulously crafted wonder, you can't help but fall in love! Made using undyed red Eri silk and enhanced with geometric tribal motifs in white Eri silk. The border is a result of detailed, nuanced craftsmanship painstakingly woven using the slow maku mara technique where each design element is made individually. A timeless masterpiece!
Red Eri is a rare variety found in the Kokrajhar district of Assam that feeds on a particular species of ficus leaves (ficus citrifolia), producing reddish-orange silk cocoons. These cocoons are separated from the white and processed separately, producing the unique and very beautiful red Eri silk.

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.
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.
