"In this world of infinite possibility
I look around for the second step
All I see is one footprint!"
("The Footprint" by Mirza Ghalib, 1797 - 1869)
Patterns and designs come in infinite possibilities from those handloom machines.
This industry is mostly held by Muslim families whom passed this amazing knowledge to their descendants. Today the silk handloom weavers of Varanasi (Benaras) are stuggling for existence.
They need our help in order to carry on.
We need to be creative and to make people enjoy those amazing fabrics which are an heritage of the great Mughals.
This picture was shot in one of our workshops as we were working on a new design for our new collection.
