Chitre: School Bags

Here are some of the students of Shree Lali Gurans Primary School showing off the locally-woven bags they use for their school books. This school is in the small village of Chitre in the Annapurnas where I taught English for 2 months.

On my final day at the school, I was presented with my very own school bag as a parting gift.

To see the two-coloured warp that allows the small horizontal stripes, and the double-thread weft that gives thickness & texture to the weave, see Burtibang Back-strap Weaving
