STORY:

During the rains, Aita would dress us up in the flamboyant hand-woven ‘ege gasor' (a two-piece traditional attire) to dance Gumrag with the other Mishing women in the village. At one end we would find a couple of my aunts busy making pithaa, laaru, kaata-nimki and at the other end, we would see my mother and aunts busy cooking for the feast.

This white cotton checked mekhela chador is a stunner.

DESCRIPTION:

Mekhela Chador is a traditional attire worn by women in Assam. The bottom portion draped from the waist downwards, is called the mekhela. The top portion is the chador which is a long piece of cloth which has one end tucked into the upper portion of the mekhela above the belly button and the rest is draped around the chest similarly like a saree. One of the most hassle free garment, mekhela chador looks as elegant and stylish as a saree once it is draped.
