The fact that sets this silk apart from all other versions is that it is totally golden yellow in color. The word “Muga” means yellowish in Assamese. The source is the Muga silkworm which dates back to the age of dinosaurs and is so sensitive in nature that it cannot tolerate even the smallest of pollution levels. It is made from the semi-cultivated silkworm named Antheraea assamensis. It is organic and natural and contains the strongest natural fiber.
