Angami Naga Shawl


Historically, the traditional Angami shawl is a symbol of bravery, a black woolen shawl with bold animal motifs embroidered onto its surface. The wild animals are symbolic of the head-hunting tradition that the tribe is known for. Woven onto the plain run of the fabric are bands of color in red and green.
The process is truly dexterous. It starts off with washing the wool with tapioca pearls, or what we locally call “sabudana”. The dried wool is then spun and drawn into yarn, longitudinally with wooden supports arranged laterally to form the structure of the fabric. The loom is specially designed for this purpose and requires a unique skill-set in order to be used with precision.
