Handloom weaving is Assam‘s largest and oldest industry. Weaving has been a way of life in Assam since time immemorial. Tradition has it that the skill to weave was the primary qualification of a little girl for her eligibility for marriage. A soldier was sent off for battle with a dress material made overnight. And one that was considered as important as his weapon. This perhaps explains why Assam has largest concentration of handlooms and weavers in the country.  Handloom of Assam is not confined to a particular group of people or to a particular region. Assam was one of the first places where the practice of rearing silkworms and using heir fiber came into  vogue. The practice is one that has survived the downfall of the Assam Raj and the alterations in the  economic conditions of the people that is entailed, and in spite of the attraction of imported silk and cotton.

Muga silk ‘Mekhala Chador’ is still the national dress of Assamese and forms the common costume of the woven of the Assam valley. Weaving has been in Assam an age old affair descending down from cohort to generation through the pathway of centuries old history. Assamese text and scriptures bear ample testimony to this.
