ABOUT MEKHELA CHADAR(SADOR)- THE TRADITIONAL DRESS OF ASSAM
Mekhela Chadar (Sador) is the traditional dress of Assam. It is undoubtedly the one of most graceful, elegant, and royal attires of India. There are two main pieces of clothing in it- The Mekhela and the Chadar.
The bottom portion i.e the Mekhela, is draped from the waist down like a skirt and is pleated and tucked inside. The top portion i.e the Chadar (Sador), is a long yard of cloth that has one side tucked into the Mekhela and the rest of the Chadar is draped over and around the rest of the body.
Assam is a hub of traditional, rich silk in the form of Muga, Paat and Eri ( Ahimsa Silk). Among these, Muga silk is the most prominent, rare, and prestigious one. From the past century of the Pal dynasty, King Dharma Pal sponsored the craft and brought 26 weaving families from Tantikuchi to Sualkuchi. Since then, most Assamese homes can boast about how a loom and weaving are essential parts of an Assamese household. Weaving in Assam gained popularity since the Ahom era. Handloom weaves were at the peak of their glory during this period. Spinning and weaving were the most recognized profession of every Assamese household since then. In the past, there were many royal looms for producing special types of fabrics for the royal families. They were called Rajagharia looms. They used to send their silks as gifts to the Mughal court.
Weaving is the traditional industry of Assam. Weaving beholds the identity of women of Assam. The Handloom industry plays a vital role in the economic growth of the country.
