August is for Mizoram - Mara Weaves on display in the Diary of the Ministry of Overseas India Affairs

Thrilled to share pages from a recently released diary of the Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs. Images of Mara weaves from Chakhang and our times in Saiha were used in this diary for the month of August 2012.  Thanks Vivek Ratnakar, IANS for selecting these images to represent the crafts in Mizoram. 

Thanks also to the women from Chakhang who wove the fabrics and frowned at my machine loomed Mara bag (thanks it was education for me). Happy weaving!  

Jeniffer Chozah a shelf from your beautiful home is part of the pictures as well  and so is your  farewell gift on the main page (remember?).
