    BODO TRIBE
    India

     

    The Bodo tribe are widely acknowledged as some of India's finest weavers. Having been the first settlers in the Brahmaputra valley, they are reputed to have taught weaving to the rest of the northeastern population. Using the "extra warp“ method, they weave beautiful motifs, inspired by nature. Even today the Bodos weave their traditional dress, called Dokhana, which is still regularly worn. Bodos use a very crude, basic frame loom called Zidagr. The Zidagr is completely made out of bamboo and other locally available material.
