This gorgeous olive green SAREE is made from pure Paat silk (or Mulberry silk). Traditional Assamese motifs in black and red colours are handwoven painstakingly in a traditional loom. Bold patters are woven at the saree end (pallu) and saree border, while delicate motifs are strewn all over the saree.
The domestic Mulberry silk produced in Assam is locally called Paat silk, or Nuni, or Nuni Paat. This variety of Mulberry silkworms feed on the naturally grown white Mulberry plant leaves which is called “Nuni” in Assamese. Paat silk is known for its softness, glossy texture and durability. The raw silk version of Paat silk is locally called “Kesa Paat” which is a delicate fibre and light as a feather.
Assam Paat silk has a naturally white or off-white tint. It can be dyed into various vibrant colours to match your creativity and mood.
