15 October 2010- Assam, one of the seven north east states of India, is famous for its gold-tinted Muga silk which is used to weave some of the most beautiful and unique sarees. Muga silk is considered to be the most expensive of all silks and is known for its natural shimmering golden color. Its production is confined only to Assam, and is produced by the muga silkworms (Antheraea assama). Muga is intrinsically woven into the cultural traditions of the Assamese people and has found its acceptance in other parts of the country as well.

The vibrant mekhala-chaddars and sarees are the traditional items made from muga silk. In recent years, fashion designers have started using muga silk for developing wide range of fashion garments, besides the traditional sarees. Use of muga yarn as a substitute for 'zari' in sarees is finding its popularity with reputed weavers. The muga silk saree has an unique golden color, a natural shade of gold, which is not found in any other fabrics. The muga silk saree has a glossy look as well. With the base color remaining golden, the muga sarees are wonderfully designed using various colorful threads.
