Handloom Muga Silk fabric 2.5 Meters - 46" Width

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 produces 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.

The fabric is made out of hand reeled Muga . Muga Silk fabrics or saris will have a stiff hand feel in the beginning . But with constant use over the years it will become very soft . It will retain its lustre and strength. Muga is stronger than all the other commercial silks namely mulberry , tassar and eri . If stored and used with care , It will outlast one's lifetime .

It is suitable for any fashion articles but more suited for slightly structured garments.
