The Story:

As its name suggests, the Millionaire Naga features prominently the Naga. The design was inspired by our Queen Naga wall hanging. Even though traditional techniques and designs were used, the geometry of it all intertwined with striking colours gives it a very modern feel. The background threads were naturally dyed using teak leaves.

This wall hanging is woven using the Discontinuous Supplementary Weft (Chok) technique. Two or more coloured pattern threads are used to make the pattern. The weavers adds the coloured thread by hand as opposed to using a shuttle.

This technique is very time consuming. Sometimes a weaver can only weave a few centimeters a day. The wider the cloth, the longer it takes. The smaller one took 190 hours to weave and the bigger one, 300 hours.
