A piece of woven art!

Red Eri silk mehkela sador accentuated with latticed palla in Muga spun silk. Set includes an unstitched blouse piece. 

Red Eri silk has a natural red/golden tint. Depending on the leaves eaten by the worms, Eri cocoons usually is white/off-white verging towards cream. But there's another rare one found in the Kokrajhar district of Assam which is brick red in color. The difference between the white and the red Eri is subtle but so fine when looked at closely.

Mekhela: 1.75m x 2m (approx. circumference)

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.
