Weaving is an important industry in Mizoram and most women in rural areas are good at it. They do it either for self or for commercial purposes.
The state government is also promoting weaving by sending women to higher institutes so that they can implement technological development in the art. One can now find shawls woven by machines in most of the cities, especially in the state capital. Do check them out and take home for your loved ones if you visit the state.
