Naga Tribal Textile Runner TTL10


This Naga textile is ideal for use as an exotic table or bed runner or even a wall hanging. It has been hand woven on a backstrap loom with traditional motifs formed in a series of wave-like diamond patterns in brown on camel – a design rarely seen. The textile ends in knotted tassels and the reverse side can also be used (shown in the last photo of the textile).

The Naga are an ancient tribal people found in the hills of Northeast India and parts of Burma. They have a 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 often added using a porcupine needle.
