Description

“Loree Hamlei”, the local name for stone pottery of Manipur is a traditional cookware which is used for cooking by the local community even today. The clay used for this pottery is obtained by crushing and mixing two types of rocks that are locally found in & around Longpi region of Manipur: Serpentinite & Weather rocks. The final stage of the pottery involves rubbing them with a local leaf known as Machee leaf which renders the black colour to the pottery. Our range of products are hand-made by these traditional rural artisans who have been making them for generations. We travel through the country in search of such traditional knowledge residing with different communities and bring it back for you to experience it. Let us put Traditional Wisdom to Practice!
