Cultural and Tradition

cultural-14Kachin State, the northern most part of Myanmar, consists of scenic snow-cape mountain. Kachin State is also rich in high artistic qualities. The lifeblood of Myanmar, the Ayeyarwaddy River flows down from this region. Kachin nationals such as jing phaw, Saiwa, Lawa, Lachate, Rawun and Lisu inhabit the region together.

With other national dresses which they themselves made in traditional ways. I can see a hand loom called Jakhoke. It is made basically of wooden bamboos easily move for place to place, weaving is done with the wooden blade. cultural-15The significances of Jingphaw traditional dress is with the adornment of silver symbols along the back and front, along the wrist line, rings made of cane are carried at the ankle and the traditionally woven red stockings are also added to it.

Lachate traditional dress is basically similar to Jingphaw dress; buttons and shells adorned are marvellous even today. Rawun traditional dress is made of natural jute fibres. This dress depicts the beauty of creativity, simplicity, durability and cultural-16bravery. Lisus adorn their dress with buttons, beads and fancy pearls in fantastic designs.

So, the Kachin nationals weave and made their traditional dress with tenacity, creativity and unique style, which made them prominent.
