Monpa Necklace From Arunachal Pradesh

If you want to interact with the Monpas, do visit the westernmost part of Arunachal Pradesh. These tribes are said to follow the Mahayana sect of Buddhism which they adopted from Merak Lama.

As an profession, they make shawls, carpets, paintings, masks, bags, jewellery and a lot of other creative stuff.Gorgeously handcrafted designs by the various tribes of Arunachal Pradesh. The accessories are inspired by the local livelihood of the people of Arunachal Pradesh. Pair up any outfit with our ethnic handmade collection to create a unique style statement.

This beautiful Monpa necklace is inspired by the Monpa tribe, a prominent tribe from the Arunachal Pradesh state. When we take a close look at the traditional dress of the Monpa, it is based on the Tibetan Chuba. The jewellery worn by this tribe includes silver rings and earrings made of smooth bamboo pieces comprising turquoise or red beads. The costumes adorned by these people are attractive owing to the richness in colour. Such vibrancy and the myriad of patterns are specific characteristics of this tribe's culture. They have a particular style of embellishments and aesthetic culture. However, they have increasingly been adding new patterns and motifs which are more aligned with the aesthetics of the younger generation, following their tastes in fashion and designs more closely.

 

Our monpa necklace from Arunachal Pradesh features bright colours, such as this beautiful turquoise, instead of traditional shades of red, black, and green. The designs are not specific to a tribe but offer a modern technique reflecting how the tribe has embraced Western culture and melded it with its traditional art.

 

The best part of this necklace is that it can be accessorized any way you want, as it is a perfect way to show understated elegance.
