A renowned textile craft from Manipur is the Shamilami, which uses a technique that combines those of weaving and embroidery. The embroidery is done in dark matching shade with untwisted silk thread on the border of the phanek(a lungi or lower body wrap worn by women). Colours in dark red, plum or chocolates are usually used. Angami Naga shawls have animal motifs in black.
