About this Menternship

Handlooms are dismissed as cultural dinosaurs — primitive technologies irrelevant in a modern economy. This view ignores that Indian handlooms are not just the largest source of employment and income generation after agriculture, but also the one area of skill, creativity and expertise where India is way ahead of the world. Handlooms are India’s strength, not weakness. But the protection and incentives given to these handloom weavers are almost negligent. If we remove protection and incentives for handloom weavers, we would be left bereft of our past.
