This collectible Therukadiera Shawl is a ‘prestige cloth’ conferred upon a Chakhesang Naga couple that has offered their first ‘Feast of Merit’ to invoke peace and reconciliation. It signifies the virtue of generosity.
It is woven by skilled indigenous women of the Chakhesang tribe in the mountains of Northeast India, on back strap looms. This pure white shawl is woven in four strips that are sewn together with a decorative ridged seam, using a porcupine quill and thick cotton yarn.
Naga tribal textiles represent the gender, identity and role of the wearer, together with their stature in the community.
This contemporary shawl is exclusively woven in cotton by Leshemi Origins for ARTISANS' Gallery.
