The Naga are an ancient tribal people found in the hills of Northeast India and North-Western Burma. They have a long and rich tradition of textile weaving and are renowned for their flamboyant adornments for the body. Textile weaving is the preserve of women. They employ the back-strap loom tension method (sometimes called Indonesian) using handspun cotton and sometimes hemp. After the cloth has been woven, small patches of embroidery are sometimes added using a porcupine needle.

Tribal textiles from the Naga add an exotic presence to both Western and Asian inspired decor.
