I am a little confused about Jainsem and Jain-kyrshah(pictures below). According to my little research based on asking around some local people..Jainsem is an attire which hangs loosely from the shoulders down to the ankles, and is not caught in at the waist..while Jain-kyrshah is a checkered cotton cloth knotted over one shoulder-sort of an improvised apron.

While the checkered cloth tied around the lady’s(left below) head is called a Kyrshah, and is usually worn during harvesting.

A few good examples(below) of wearing the traditional tartan patterned shawl Tapmohkhlieh. It is worn from the top, covering the head, fastened  behind  the  neck,  looping down to cover the upper part of the body, and then falling loose. Sometimes it’s folded in half which I’ve been told is not the right way to wear it. The short shawls with fringes are not Tapmokhlieh but just regular shawls, and the long ones are..umm..blankets?

Tartan is particularly associated with Scotland and Scottish kilts usually have tartan patterns, so do Tapmohkhliehs. 2nd reason why Shillong is called Scotland of the East. First is the English houses with chimneys…..
