Handwoven silk saree in Natural dyed Indigo blue .
 
The Sari has mulberry silk in the warp and eri silk in the weft and the interweaving motifs Muga Spun Silk and natural colour Eri Silk yarns.

The mulberry silk in this case is raw mulberry silk . Known locally as 'kesa pat ' or 'nooni' . It has slight crispness and less sheen than the finer mulberry silk yarns.

Muga Spun is derived from the waste of muga silk cocoons and yarns. It doesn't have the bright golden sheen of the filament muga silk yarns . The dark beige colour is it's natural colour .

The Eri yarns have been dyed using natural Assam Indigo extracts.

The saree has been woven in a time consuming manner where the back side is clean and the borders have been woven along the saree.

Since Eri Silk is there, the sari does not have the typical sheen that is associated with Silks from India. Eri Silk is an indigenous Silk variety from India found in Assam and some other North Eastern States. The lack of sheen is typical of Eri Silks.

Eri silks are easier to care for than mulberry or Tassar. They also have anti fungal properties that makes it excellent for anyone with skin allergies towards silks or other fibres

Eri Silk feels & falls like cotton but with inherent silk properties.

The sari is very soft , light weight and airy . Falls beautifully . And very easy to handle. It is very lightweight .

The Sari has a plain blouse piece with a border.

The blouse and accessory on the mannequin are for image purposes only.

We try to capture the exact colours but due to lighting issues , there may be slight difference of colour between the actual product and that of the image. The yellow colour is on the brighter side .
