Pragjyotika in Dakshinapan Complex

This outlet of the Assam Government Emporium in Dakshinapan, Kolkata, has been in operation since the last 29 years.  Pragjyotika Assam emporium is an extremely popular Kolkata shop and is known for its vast collection of Assam silk sarees, mekhlas, ( half sarees), Assamese gamchhas, handmade accessories & costume jewellery.

Assamese Silk @ Pragjyotika Assam emporium

Assamese silk sarees are made from Muga silk, Pat silk and the Eri or Endi silk. Muga yarn cannot be bleached or dyed and hence its natural golden color is retained in the fabric. Others like Pat silk are usually in brilliant white or off-white colour. Eri silk is soft and warm and is popularly used in shawls and quilts.


They also stock handicrafts and decor items such as the miniature one horned rhinos, decorative hats, lampshades and baskets, trays and flower vases. Some of them are made of straw and other natural light weight materials.

The famous Assam Tea is available in this Kolkata shop.
