Marwada Vinu Bhanji
Vinod (aged 31) belongs to a traditional weaving family from Kotai, Bhuj. He left his studies after the 8th standard and learned weaving at the age of 19. He is now a highly skilled weaver, specializing in intricate extra weft designs in both cotton and wool textiles. Vinod is well known for his friendly personality and for his uncle who featured in the famous film "Lagaan".
Vinod wishes to continue with handloom weaving as he believes it be a very dignified profession which also allows him to stay at home with his family. In his free time, he loves taking my 7-year old lovely daughter on bike visits to the village market. Apart from good weaving skills, Vinod excels in cooking and makes a killer "Pulao".
