Khadi conference

I was at a conference about Khadi in Bangalore today and I found it quite wonderful. They were many women who are older than me, but know Indian textiles in a way that is both subtle and deep. The all wore Sarees. There were a number of weavers from different parts of India. It was such a treat to learn about the variety of textile traditions that we have in different parts of this country. Here are some photographs from the event.

  1. Hi Shoba — Don’t know what to make of this: “They were many women who are older than me, but know Indian textiles in a way that is both subtle and deep. ”

    Did you expect the older women to know less about Indian textiles? I am sure that is not the case.
