The motifs are characteristic of the Miri or Mising tribe – the indigenous tribe that hail from Assam and Arunachal Pradesh regions of India. This tribe is believed to be of Mongoloid origin. Mising language, the language of the Miri/Mising tribe is part of the Sino-Tibetan family.
Tussar silk is also known as Wild silk. The silkworms feed on a variety of locally grown natural wild trees, and not on mulberry trees. Tussar is valued for its rich texture and natural deep gold colour. The fabric is porous, therefore, making it breathable and extremely wearable even in warmer parts of the world.
