Handloom Muga Silk Mekhela Chador Set from our looms in Assam , India 

This set is a classic version of Muga Silk Mekhla Chador . The red motifs with Muga Silk is the ubiquitous Muga Silk of Assam . The main motif at the two ends of the chador is the 'Kinkhap ' . 

Muga Silk - The most valued silk from India. Almost exclusively reared and produced in Assam, India. It is indigenous to the Brahmaputra Valley and assiduously practiced in the districts of Assam. The moth is basically a wild moth. Hence it is categorised as Vanya Silk or Wild silk by the silk board of India.(http://csb.gov.in/silk-sericulture/silk/vanya-silk/)

The yarn produced is a natural rich golden yellow or light brown colour depending on  the host plant it feeds on. These are unique products. Muga silks resist sunshine and are more durable than mulberry silks. Muga silks can be termed Organic as no harmful chemicals have been used in the cultivation of host trees or in the processing of silk fabrics.  No dyes are applied to the yarns. The golden colour is its natural colour. Most Muga rearing and cultivation is still done by village clusters in Assam in the traditional method. 

 Muga Silk also tend to be slightly fluffy which over a period will settle down. 

 A Muga silk Mekhla Chadar is a must have for Assamese brides. 

The interweaving motifs are in Acrylic .
