The role of Dangnga weaving in advancing Sustainable 

As part of Its all folk's commitment towards archiving Monpa textiles and material culture we initiated the study and documentation of the heritage Dangnga weaving of the Monpas of Arunachal Pradesh to understand its role in advancing sustainable development. 


The study and the documentation was conducted in two Community Conserved Areas in West Kameng district of Arunachal Pradesh, funded by WWF India. The objective of the study was to understand the role of traditional craft practices and craft making situated in places as a means in manifesting social norms, identities, economic conditions, sense of belonging, social cohesion, material resources, knowledge transfer, beliefs, values, patterns of production and consumption. 

The study was lead by Its all folk and conducted by two design students - Sayan Biswas and Shailey Jain as part of their course curriculum module "Craft Documentation"at National Institute of Design, Jorhat (Assam).
