Abstract: It is truly the God’s gift and definitely the human creation which helps to turn leaves into silk which contribute to one of the basic necessity of human being that is cloth. Sericulture has vast potentiality for employment generation in rural areas. Sericulture has been practiced in Assam from ancient time. Sualkuchi is known as Manchester of Assam as it has large number of cottage industry engaged in handloom. This paper deals with sericulture tradition of Assam and the importance of Sualkuchi as a producer of silk. Silk producing activities are mostly home-based. These practices originated from rural families where weaving and silk production was a tradition. Assam generally produces three types of silk—Pat silk, Muga silk and Eri silk. The demand for muga, a monopoly of Assam, has been growing with its increasing popularity in India and abroad. The market for Eri is another exclusive silk of Assam. The demand for Paat is also high due to its unique texture. Here, we are going to discuss the brief description of all the three types of silk. Despite all these distinct advantages, the indigenous silk industry of Assam is struggling a lot to survive in the present world. This paper explains how the cheap alternatives of local silk products of Assam capture the local market. It also discusses the impact of these disturbances on the life of weavers of Sualkuchi.
