They stock and sell many wonderful products, their bestsellers are table runners, cushion covers and bags. ‘People love the souvenirs as well because they are not found anywhere else in Mizoram.’
It is the best place to look for traditional handcrafted home decor items, souvenirs and accessories at affordable prices. The Ethnic Warehouse is committed to empowering women and using eco-friendly material. Their hand-woven collections are woven by single mothers/widows, who have faced abuse or were abandoned by their husbands, and have no access to any kind of support system.
Their collections also feature fabrics and weaves from the region. ‘We make use of local loin loom and handloom along with fabric from other parts of the country. They are stitched by local tailors. Our handicraft collection is handmade by local craftsmen and artisans.
