This orange handwoven saree in Paat silk (Mulberry silk) is accentuated with traditional Assamese motifs in multi-coloured yarn. The motifs and patterns are handwoven and they showcase some perennial designs typical of this region. This is 100% handcrafted by the rural weavers of Assam in a traditional loom.
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.
