Handloom expo in Imphal photos (courtesy:www.e-pao.net)

Have a look at some of the exhibits at the National Handloom Expo 2014 held in Imphal in October this year! Absolutely stunning hand woven textiles from the state of Manipur in India. Who wouldn’t fall in love with the colours and weaves 🙂

There is a prevalence of man-made yarns being used in weaving in recent times owing to its ready availability and low prices but it’s heartening to see the silk and cotton products still going strong. One can’t replicate the softness of cotton or the richness of pure silk.
