In my travel across various parts of the country I have seen women perform all activities in the process of weaving. However, they are still not recognised as primary weavers or bread winners. When I was working with Mrs Sally Holkar, she always mentioned that women in our country are 'Shadow Weavers', i.e. they would weave in the dark of the night, or when their husbands are away but never take the credit for it and for a long time we pretended to associate women with the role of only pre-loom workers.
Their role was critical in doing all the patient hard work behind the scenes and their role is critical in getting the fabric woven in time.
It's time we bring them to the foreground.Our team tried to capture many incredible moments with women weavers at work from Bengal, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh.
More power to them.
