Carpet Weaving of Arunachal Pradesh

Craft Revival Trust

Carpet weaving calls for a high degree of skill and dexterity and is generally done by the Monpa women in West Kameng and the tribes of North Siang, district apart form the Tibetan community settled in the area. Carpets are woven in bright colours with predominantly Tibetan motifs such as the dragon or geometric and floral designs, reflecting the Tibetan-Buddhist influence in the area. Wool colours were originally obtained using vegetable and other natural dye sources, although synthetic dyes and chemicals are now commonly used.
