Longpi Hamlei as black pottery is traditionally called, was once, only used by rich and dignified noble families of Manipur. Cooking pots, stout kettles, quaint bowls, mugs and nut trays often with a lacing of fine cane is fashioned by the Tangkhul Naga tribe.
Since Longpi pottery is made from grounded and powdered rocks especially Serpentine and weathered rocks, they are made of all natural raw materials. The cane finish on some of the items is also natural and 100% eco-friendly. No machines were used in making of the potteries since the mixture is pounded, kneaded and moulded tediously by hand tools. All the Longpi products are handmade where the artisans mould the products with hands, no machines or electrical supplies are used. The raw materials used in making of the potteries are completely natural since no chemicals or artificial products are used. Longpi pottery items are naturally biodegradable due to the raw materials used in making these fine pottery items.By purchasing a Longpi Black Pottery product, you not only contribute to the environment but also towards a sustainable means of living for the impoverished countless families in the villages who make these wonderful works of art.
