Muga – precious Indian silk

The rare, wild silk known as muga is produced almost exclusively in Assam in India. In its natural state, it comes in a gorgeous palette of golden hues. The woven cloth displays a subtle stripe, the product of slight differences in natural color for each silk filament. Traditionally, the darker, more vivid shades have been valued most highly, but we think all are lovely. Muga silk has a pretty, soft sheen and a light hand, making it a joy to wear – breathable, pleasant against the skin. Historically, muga was a luxury reserved for members of the royal house but today we too can clothe ourselves in this extraordinary fabric.
