A beautiful find in my search for authentic Indian textiles. Handspun cotton woven on hand looms.

Sadly, this is dying a slow death, not because of low demand but because the majority of the weavers have come of age and the younger generation is not too keen on taking this up as a career option. This is happening across all fields of craft and many artisanal techniques will be lost forever.

In the near future, handmade and handcrafted will be a luxury very few people will be able to afford.
