Fine quality pure cotton table runner made through loin loom by tribals of Nagaland.
Weaving in Nagaland is done exclusively by women, unlike other parts of India, using a loin loom. This type of loom is portable and can be operated by a single woman. The portable Naga loin loom has a back strap with a continuous horizontal warp. The kotong (its six sticks) functions as the warp beam. It is fastened to the wall of the house by loops that are set at a distance equal to the breadth of the cloth to be woven.
Gentle hand wash separately in cold water with mild/liquid detergents. Avoid soaking for too long.
