The Enchanting Assam Silk Sarees from the North East of India

unm12581_b1Assam in the North Eastern Part of India and one of the ‘seven sisters’ has a flourishing textile industry because of the good quality of cotton grown in the region and the rearing of silkworms for producing silk, which is a household occupation. Assam Sarees are known for being light on the body and needing little to maintain. Available in both cotton and silk varieties, with their beautiful patterns, elegant borders and multi-coloured hues, they are a feast for the eyes. Assam Silk Sarees also known as Paat sarees are made from Muga (golden silk), Mulberry Silk or Eri Silk, with the Muga Silk variety being most popular. Muga Silk Worms abound only in Assam and in the North East, since they can survive only in the climatic conditions found there. Muga Silks acquire a new dimension in beauty when zari work or multi-coloured threads with patterns like fruits, flowers, diamonds, animals, birds as motifs, accompany the base fabric.

The Lustre of the traditional Paithani silk saree

unm11412_b2_1The traditional Paithani sarees of Maharashtra speak of finery that has sparkle and dazzle. A rich fabric that employs pure silk threads and silver dipped zari, it is a garish display that makes the saree both high-priced and special. A traditional fabric of rich finery, the Paithani saree is a splendid combination of pure silk and fine silver zari, exquisitely hand-woven and adorned with beautiful motifs.

The special feature of the Paithani silk saree

This grand saree is known for its characteristic borders and the peacock design on the pallu. The rich-look Paithani sarees have a plain or spotted body, a characteristic square design with its variations on the coloured borders and a typical Peacock design on the pallu or end-piece. Known for the more popular kaleidoscopic variety that displays a fine shimmering effect on account of more than one coloured silk thread being used in the weave, this saree of pure silk and silver zari is not only costly but also a much sought after and prized possession on account of the richness of the fabric.

unm6962_1_1_2A plain weave, the Paithani gets its exquisite look from the special way in which the pure silk weft interstices with the silver zari on the warp. There could be two different borders for the body which would involve different silk wefts for the borders and body. Additional complexity would come in when the pallu is also taken up separately. This not only calls for skill but tremendous calculation as well.

The silver zari on the warp is so fine and tightly maintained that it forms a silver carpet with tapestry that is dazzling. Times of golden zari are few and far on account of the prohibitive cost. The silk used in the weft is Charkha silk and Sidlaghatta silk whereas filature silk is used for the warp.

The Paithani is today affordable to a sizeable section of the market. On account of the purity of materials and the elaborate finery, the saree is quite heavy and worn for exclusive occasions only. It is jealously treasured to be displayed on those weddings, festivals, functions, grand parties, that call for it.
