North-east hand loom is known for its unique design and color combination. In older times handloom and handicraft were an integral part for day to day work for these communities. But with migration and modernization they are restricted only to attract tourists.
Even far fetched villages like these (here Ukhrul) where the tribals wear traditional dresses only to attract tourists . These traditions are now being slowly and steadily forgotten.
