One of the traditional attires worn by women in Mizoram state of northeast India is the dress called “puan”. Puans have always been an intrinsic part of the Mizo wardrobe. After Mizo people progressed from the “siapsuap” (a grass skirt) to fabric clothing, puan became a garment worn by both genders. It was simply worn wrapped around the body under the arms. Other types of puans were also woven and used as bedding and shawls. By the 20th century, men wore puans very rarely, since trousers had become fashionable and popular. However, women kept the use of puan though it now was worn sarong-style, wrapped around the waist with a blouse on top, a practice which is retained till today.Since the traditional way of weaving is time-consuming and strenuous, it is natural that handwoven puans are much more expensive than the machine-made ones, which has further contributed to the decline in their popularity despite their higher quality.
