A gorgeous pure Paat silk (or Mulberry silk) SAREE in purple colour, heavily accentuated with traditional Assamese motifs in red and golden yarn. These motifs and patterns are some perennial designs that have been unique to this region for generations. These gorgeous designs stand out beautifully giving the drape a rich look. This piece is painstakingly handwoven over several days in a traditional loom in Assam.
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.
