A story using handloom pieces woven by the mother of Kuvelü Tetseo [Tetseo Sisters].
The blue and white ensemble [draped for this story] is a traditional look worn by young Chakhesang women of Nagaland.
The brass bangles are known as ‘Süwhi’. Thüvopisü is the Village of Kuvelu Tetseo.
We shot this at the divine Dzüdü lake which is located about 3 kms away from the village.
