Through an exciting collaboration with Native Northeast in Assam, Annaloom now offers curated textile tours of Assam, Meghalaya and Nagaland. The tours are crafted to bring guests right to the artisans, to experience their lifestyle, to interact with them and take part in workshops.

Northeast India is one of the most enriched biodiversities of the world, home to numerous fascinating tribes, and at the crossroads of India, China and Southeast Asia. Not yet well established on the tourist map, this region is beginning to attract travellers with curiosity and a sense of adventure.

Sharing its borders with Tibet, Bhutan, Myanmar and Bangladesh, it has until recently been politically and geographically sealed off from the outside world. It was this inaccessibility that enabled the region and it’s people to preserve their unique ecological and cultural diversity.

Recently, with developments in infrastructures and a better connectivity to the rest of the world through air, rail and road, this remote region is now accessible to the keen explorer.
