Another thing that Shillong is known for is Garo Weave also known as Dalkmanda which is a very rare weave and is almost on the verge of extinction. The dakmanda is hand woven and has a six to 10 inch border with a motif or floral designs. It is usually used in eri silk, muga, cotton and khadi from the region for the collection. We were guided by local craftsmen and with their help; we were able to develop our own dedicated team of weavers in Garo Hills.
