Sualkuchi

 

Located on the north bank of the Brahmaputra in the district of Kamrup approximately 20 kms from Guwahati, Sualkuchi is one of the world's largest weaving villages and is often referred to as the Manchester of the East. It produces three unique varieties of silks: the white pat, the warm eri but it is particularly known for the golden muga silk, since Assam is the only place in the world to make this.

Silks grown all over the state find their way to Sualkuchi, a renowned centre of silk production, and virtually the entire population is engaged in weaving exquisite fabrics.
