Enter Manipur – the land of the Meiteis, Kukis, Pangals and many other tribes, the land where November enters with the sound of merry-making as married women visit their parental homes for the festival of Ningol Chakouba, where Holi is celebrated as the colourful six-day-long Yaosang, where the people greet the new year with gusto in March/April as Cheiraoba. Experience this northeastern state from the comforts of your home with oregional Manipuri cuisine and black pottery handicrafts from SaleBhai.
Deck your cabinets with a slice of Manipuri culture, its aesthetically-pleasing black pottery that comes from the Longpi villages of Ukhrul district. Polishing the pottery, made from ground black serpentine stone and brown clay, with the leaves of Chiron ni tree gives them the special black hue.
Credited with introducing polo to Europeans, Manipur calls out to adventurers and its migrants alike with its calming Loktak Lake, Dzuko Valley with its seasonal flowers and their burst of colours, and the only floating national park of the world, Keibul Lamjao. All these and more will ignite your wanderlust, as you relish its unique black rice or complete your outfit with a hand-woven water reed handbag from this beautiful state.
