Gives us so much pride to present 'Nungshiba Handicrafts', meaning- 'Love' in Manipuri, in honor of our first Crafts Designer - Babita Meitei who is a Manipuri. Taking inspiration from Japanese culture and their beautiful Japanese Dolls the girls are making use of excess and leftover fabrics from our manufacturing unit and making beautiful handcrafted dolls of Nagaland. With our vision to build a brand that will provide opportunities, jobs and welfare to generations the girls are working tirelessly.- experimenting and innovating to make beautiful handcrafted dolls of Nagaland. The out-pour of support has been overwhelming, we are humbled by everyone's unbiased love and support transcending gender, tribe, religion or community. Taking that as an inspiration and also being aware of an ever-growing multi-tribal team speaking of native tongue is not allowed at work, to encourage more unity at work.

Handcrafted by local tribal women from the beautiful hills of Nagaland, the dolls have been carefully designed and made to resemble the unique and beautiful tribal's from North-East India. Each Nungshiba handcrafted doll takes a day to make, with a lot of labor, detailing, experimenting and perseverance by the local tribal women. This is to ensure each Nungshiba handcrafted doll is special, unique and a joy forever. Nungshiba is an initiative to encourage more self empowerment by innovating- using creativity, artistic talent and skills.
