FABRIC: Moonga Silk is made from the semi-cultivated silkworm. It is organic and natural and has the strongest natural fibre. Moonga silk (Muga Paat) or the golden silk is not only a nature's gift to Assam, but also a symbol of rich Assamese culture. It represents the brilliance of traditional attire of the region. The most significant characteristic of 'Muga silk' is its golden bright hue. Its name is derived from Assamese word 'Muga', which means yellow. The fabric is superior in every respect in comparison to the normal white silk that is available all over the world. It is also much more durable. With time it only becomes more beautiful. Muga silk's brightness improves with every wash. It's no wonder that Muga silk is one of the costliest silks available in the world. Today, the cost of Muga silk is so high that for a middle-class woman in Assam it has become a prized possession, just as her gold ornaments.
CARE: Since, Muga Silk is very expensive silk, one needs to be careful for the product. There is a secret of Muga Silk, gentle washing can actually increase the sparkle and shine of the silk. Being such a delicate and costly fabric, hand washing is recommended with a very mild and gentle detergent, massage the saree softly in warm water, and allow to air dry.
