This gorgeous set of Mekhela Sador has a maroon Mekhela and yellow Sador. The traditional motifs and patterns are in contrast colours and golden zari. The end of the Sador is neatly finished with tassels. The elegance of this exquisite cotton drape is perfect to grace any special occasion.
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 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.
