Drawing inspiration from Hanjong's Pathin (wrap skirt), our luxuriously handcrafted plum mehkela sador, in Kesa Paat (raw mulberry silk), features a striped body. The sador's pallu and the mekhela are accentuated with our favourite Chokori motif in grey-blue Eri silk with a pop neon meenakari. 

It is said that the Hajongs had come from Tibet along with other Kachari tribes to North-east India along the Brahmaputra and Tista; and their tributaries and had spread over in the Sankush Valley. The Kacharis then spread across North-east India and established small kingdoms. The ones inhabiting Hajo, in the Northern bank of Brahmaputra River, came to be known as the Hajongs. The clothing of Hajong people substantiate their Tibetan origin. Pathin, the wrap skirt that Hajong women wear, whose patterns are similar to the Tibetan Pangden; is also akin to skirts of other Himalayan people like the Tamang and Bhutanese people. During winters, Hajong people use a shawl called Argon, whose patterns are very similar to Bhutanese brocade patterns.

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.
