More unpacking

After Lucknow and Kolkata we went to N E India to visit the Hill tribes. The Mising people live in Eastern Assam and Arunachal Pradesh and the women are expert weavers and were busy at their looms when they could be spared from harvesting the rice.  The colours are stunning and patterns are traditional ones from the region. This is a Mising cotton gale or wrap and shows some of the  pattern at one end. I’ll show you some more examples next time.
