Curator's Notes

The Collection
Named after the state of Northeast India in which these finely-flatwoven cotton textiles have been woven for centuries, these cushions are identifiably Naga with their minimal, abstract geometric patterns. Woven at home on loin and backstrap looms, the handiwork is exquisite, and their fresh, minimal hues fit seamlessly into your living room—while connecting you to a heritage art from a faraway land.

The Design

A cool blue palette of thin horizontal stripes whose alternating colors create the appearance of vertical bands, interrupted by dynamic groups of thin half-triangles.

The Material

Cotton, a vegetable fiber, is widely used in rugs because of its sturdiness and strength. It also has the ability to stay white over long periods of time, and doesn’t yellow like other commonly used fibers, which will preserve the crispness and vibrancy of the design for many years to come.

The Supplier

Our partner began in 1991 with one weaver, and today employs more than 450. Their mission is to keep alive the cultural legacy of a heritage craft that’s been practiced by tribal communities for generations—in addition to creating livelihood options for a large community of weavers in the rural landscape of Nagaland and adjoining states.
