  5. 7. SHAWLS OF NAGALAND - LOIN LOOM WEAVING
  6. 8. <ul><li>The loin loom is common to hill tribes of northeast, also refered to as backstrap or body tension loom. </li></ul><ul><li>It is one of the oldest weaving devices, the weavers body is integral to the loom and weaving is done without mechanical parts. </li></ul><ul><li>The loom consists of a continuous warp stretched between two parallel bamboos, one end tied to a post or door and the other end held by a strap worn around the weavers lower back to regulate the tension with her body. </li></ul><ul><li>The process of weaving entails two steps, winding a warp on a warping frame using vertical lease sticks that keep each thread in sequence. </li></ul><ul><li>It is then transferred to the weaver who separates it into two layers with bamboo shed pole, heald stick, lease stick, wooden rods, each serving different functions. </li></ul>
  7. 9. <ul><li>The concept of half healds, string healds which guide every alternate thread of the warp, is unique to loin looms. </li></ul><ul><li>The half heald method requires only one shed to be created and the other shed is formed ingeniously due to gravity which lowers the raised thread. </li></ul><ul><li>This device is used to construct rugged fabric for daily and ceremonial use, connotation derived from rituals, beliefs and tribe identity. Each Naga tribe has a colour and motif code which forms its distinct identity. Patterning is done in extra warp and weft techniques. </li></ul>
