About the Brand
Founder Jesmina Zeliang has been reshaping the Naga textile industry since launching her first collection in the early nineties. By combining traditional motifs with a contemporary context, she is a pioneer in reviving ancestral skills and defining a new approach for indigenous craft.
In the past two and a half decades, Heirloom Naga has been instrumental in showcasing "MadeinNagaland" textiles to customers not only within the country but to a very discerning clientele in several countries. Heirloom Naga intends to keep this cultural legacy alive through the craft of loin-loom weaving and also offer livelihood options to a large community of weavers in the rural landscape of Nagaland and adjoining states. These cultural custodians work within the confines and sanctums of their own homes and in their own pace while owning total ownership of their loom. By bringing doorstep employment to our women, we believe that this not only stems migration and encourages a circular economy but most importantly, it encourages our women to be stakeholders in continuing their traditional legacy.
