This exquisite creation is handwoven in 100% Paat silk (Mulberry silk). Traditional Assamese motifs and patterns are handwoven using black, white, green and red yarn. The end of the saree (pallu) is designed with multi-coloured traditional motifs on maroon coloured paat silk. Perfect for any grand celebration, this outstanding Paat silk saree is 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.
