Sihasn recently unveiled its Naga-themed collections, which include shawls and a new line of furniture, the highlights of which are the Nizam lounge chair and Yogi folding chair. The Naga shawls are sourced from Chizami Weaves — a North East Network Resource Centre initiative.
Starting with just seven weavers in 2008, Chizami Weaves today has 600 women in its network across 14 villages in the Phek district of Nagaland as well as urban settlers in Kohima. The fine and aquiline structure of the lounge chair lends a royal look. Firm and flexible in its structure, the comfortable Yogi folding chair can be stacked. Both are upholstered in ceramic Naga cotton weaves with patterns in black, white, pink and brown and beading detail.
