Silkalay

 

 was conceptualized way back in 1976 and was a modest beginning in Jorhat (a town in upper Assam, India). At that time very few non-Assamese business concerns showed interest in doing business in Assam silk. However the management of Silkalay had the determination to carve out a niche in this line of business and eventually it did. Now retail stores in G.S. Road and Pan Bazar, Guwahati and Dibrugarh have been serving our local customers for more than a decade. We deal with products symbolizing Assamese Tradition. ‘Mekhala Chaddar’, a local dress is one of the most sought after products by the Assamese community. These are available in varieties of fabrics such as Assam Pat Silk, Assam Muga Silk and cotton along with other mixed fabrics. Assam Silk Saree (both Pat and Muga) is another attractive product that links Assamese design on a Silk Saree. These products are designed/manufactured at Sulakuchi (about 30 km from Guwahati City) by local inhabitants. The management of Silkalay takes great pain to contact the weavers and design products as per the latest trend and eventually make it available to our customers in India and abroad. Apart from these products, we are in the process of integrating other accessories such as Salwar Suit/Shirting pieces, Shawls, Assamese Gamcha (Towels) etc. Today Silkalay is selling Assam’s finest silk yarn to both domestic and international customers. We have built up an enviable reputation by virtue of exquisite quality and craftsmanship of materials.
