MEKHELA SADOR is the commonly worn traditional attire of the women in Assam, in North-east India. Mekhela Sador's wearing style resembles a 'Saree" without being a saree itself. This is a two-piece attire (MEKHELA + SADOR).
"MEKHELA" is the long and large cylindrical cloth, resembling a skirt. It is folded into pleats and tucked in at the waist. The pleats are folded to the right unlike the saree pleats which are folded to the left.
"SADOR" is a long length of cloth; one end worn from the shoulder, the other end draped around the body and tucked into the waist along with Mekhela.
Traditional Assamese motifs are handwoven on a beige Sador and black Mekhela. The contrast in colours of Mekhela and Sador blend beautifully to make an exquisite attire for any special occasion. This piece is designed and handwoven by traditional weavers from Assam, in North-east India.
