Weaving of Clothes


In Dimasa society, weaving is an old age tradition. Mostly women are active in the weaving process. But nowadays, men can also weave.  Weaving is done in a "Daophang" and the place where the Daophang is  kept is called a "Daophangkho" . It can kept in the front or the back of the house or even have a separate room. 

A Daophang is made up of wood. Mainly there are three types of Daophang.

2. Khol ni Daophang (throw and fly shuttle loom)
