‘Contribute to propagation of traditional loin looms’

ITANAGAR, Oct 9: Governor BD Mishra’s wife, Neelam Misra, called upon entrepreneurs and socially well-established women to contribute to the preservation and propagation of the state’s traditional loin looms.
Interacting with loin loom weavers from various tribes of the state at Raj Bhavan here on Tuesday, Misra said weaving must be carried out “as an extension of our traditions and rendering of help to economically weaker ladies of our society.”
Misra, who has been practicing traditional loin loom weaving as a hobby, said weaving connects her to Arunachalee women in every nook and corner of the state.
“The designs and patterns of Arunachalee traditional weaving are unique, glamorous, and exclusive, which must be preserved,” she said.
Officers from the textiles & handicrafts department, along with invitees from other organizations, including the ITBP, attended the meeting and planned a future course of action to strive towards self-reliance and self-employment.
The documentary on traditional weaving, titled Bunai Ki Rangin Duniya – Loin Loom Weaving, conceptualized by Misra, was also screened. The documentary aims to promote traditional weaving in the state. (Raj Bhavan)
