Inside Slit Pocket
TECHNIQUE: NAGA BACK-STRAP LOOM
The fabric used in these bags was handwoven by hundreds of tribal women from the state of Nagaland, in the northeastern tip of India. The "back-strap" looms they use are tied around their waist and the outstretched legs create the tension needed to weave the yarn. It is a colorful tradition that has been perfected over centuries. Brightly colored geometric shapes have been historically used in Naga sarongs to publicly display one's tribal allegiances. These looms produce a rugged texture that we love.
