PM interacts with Arunachal loin loom weavers

By CORRESPONDENT

ITANAGAR, Feb 9 - Prime Minister Narendra Modi today inspected a set of loin looms set up at the gazebo on the front lawns of the Raj Bhavan here during his visit to the State capital. Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig (Dr) BD Mishra (retd), Chief Minister Pema Khandu and Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju were also present on the occasion.

Interacting with the loin loom weavers, the Prime Minister showed keen interest in the working of the indigenous loin looms and made enquiries about the availability of yarn for the looms. The display of the indigenous loin looms was arranged at the initiative of the Governor and his wife, Neelam Misra.

Loin loom weaving is one of the indigenous artisan skills, practised by the womenfolk of Arunachal Pradesh, that has been handed down from one generation to another. The designs and patterns of traditional weaving of the State are unique and have a distinctive attraction. Every tribe of Arunachal Pradesh has different colours and designs symbolising their identity.

Loin loom weaving is an extension of the family traditions and has been a time-tested self-employment avenue for women.

�March of modernization and changing values are posing a threat to the loin loom traditions, which may lead to the disappearance of our tribal craft and sever the age-old source of sustenance for the tribal ladies,� stated a communique from the Raj Bhavan here.

With the Prime Minister�s appreciation of the indigenous loin loom weaving, this art, craft and skill will definitely be adopted by the young ladies across the land of Arunachal Pradesh and more so by educated young girls as a hobby and tradition, the communique added.
