    Description

    EACH THREAD HAS A STORY TO TELL...

    This seed-band is dedicated to the Meira Paibis (“women torch-bearers” in local tongue), which is a women’s social movement in the Indian State of Manipur. They’re also called “guardians of civil society” as they’ve been fighting against drug abuse, crimes against women and the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) for more than four decades now.

    The Palash tree, Butea Monosperma, is also known as flame-of-the-forest. The Palash seed and the threads holding it are all trying to tell the story of these brave Imas (Mothers) of Manipur. Let’s sow these seeds of struggle hoping that the fiery spirit of these women & the Palash tree ignite in us the spark that will help keep the darkness away for a better tomorrow…
