Mizo Handloom Tools & Instruments

An indigenous weaving technique of the tribals of Mizoram, the loin loom weaver produces exclusive products where each piece is individually warped and hand-woven. These are woven at their own homes by highly skilled ladies of the community aged between 35-78 yrs who have been weaving since childhood. The unique technique of this weaving allows the maximum variety in terms of designs and color combinations as each product is crafted piece-wise.
