Handloom sector in india in going down because of cost of man power. Weavers are not getting proper wages for their input and work for weaving. For designers there is not much scope in root level, still they are fighting for survival. This will cover all aspect of handloom and how to improve it.
I have been working on an ecommerce store enhancing handloom products of orissa. But i was not asware of many facts which really pathetic in root level.
When we start our ecommece store “Odisha Saree Store” we thought it is an easy process but by now we learn many fact on handloom, how to purchase raw materials, how the Govt of India trying to make the life better for them.
Actually Govt trying many programs but many vanished by the time it reach actual needy weaver or designer in Odisha.
The Life of Weaver are still pathetic, some of them even not able to have their daily need. by this our mindset changed we are planning to help them to grow in many fields. for example we will provide them better wage rate comared to other Master weavers and societies who are taking advantage of them. Provide and share knowledge to parents, so that they educate their children.
