10th June 2012, will be a pure joy for handloom enthusiasts.

C)     Know your handlooms better – Display of yarn, fabric and garmentsalong with interaction on handloom process

The highlight of the day will be to understand the nuances of handloom as a product and the role it plays in village economies. Handloom is rarely credited for the fine balance it is struggling to maintain between generating income for the weaver and mitigating migration from rural to urban spaces. The aesthetics of handloom products also tends to over shadow the environmental harmony it perpetuates. dāram aims at spreading awareness of these factors which enhance the appeal and beauty of handlooms.

It is our belief that handloom offers a hope to our villages, if it can be established as a viable livelihood for the next generation.
