Backstrap weaving in Nagaland, 2022- 2023

My introduction to backstrap weaving in Chiang Mai gave me the confidence that this is something I could also do on my own. There is something very open-ended about the design possibilities, and the technique is not difficult to learn.

The woven fabrics shown here are a combination of what I’ve woven in Nagaland (Diezephe and Chizami), as well as fabrics I’ve woven on my own, using the same technique and guided by their traditional motifs.
