Puanchei is usually worn by women during the festivities that takes place in Mizoram. Puanchei is often paired with Kawrechi, which is also a traditional attire that Mizo women wear. Most of these were hand woven but with the current growth in technology, there is an apparent shift in the way Puanchei is made. Cotton is used primarily for the making of a Puanchei. With the factories involved, they are being made with high quality materials. Its ever-increasing demand can be met now with its large-scale production.
Puanchei was formerly known as Puanlaisen, thanks to its bold red color that usually runs through the centre of the white “puan”. Traditionally, a Puanchei is crafted with strips of yarn wrapped in looms. The transverse strips come in solid colors which runs through attire to exemplify its aesthetics. We at India Imprints adore this traditional sense of aesthetic that transcends this bounds of time with its sheer beauty and grace.
