Every evening in the small hamlets spread over Niyamgiri hills, the Dongria women of all ages sit in their verandahs, individually or in a group, busy in embroidering Kapdaganda, the shawl that symbolizes their heritage and ethnic identity.

Woven with excellent craftsmanship, Kapdaganda is prepared by women of the community who gift it to their beloved ones as a token of love. It is presented by them to their brother and father as a symbol of affection.

The off-white coarse Fabric used as raw material for Kapdaganda is procured from the Domb, The designs are embroidered on the cloth by a needle using threads. The Dongria used turmeric, bean leaves & wild seeds to color yellow, green & red respectively. You can shop for these amazing pieces of art & culture from Tribes India.

The skilled needle work tells us about the importance of community & life in the midst of Niyamgiri. Coming from a self- sustaining tribe in one of the most remote areas of Orissa the life of these women is no less than that of a warrior.
