This video expresses the concept of artisan ethos in almost too many ways to count: from the centuries old traditions of weaving in India , to creative communities coming together to rebuild cultural patrimony in the face of natural disasters, not to mention the well-crafted visual storytelling of the piece itself. (Kudos yet again to Anoodha and her Curiouser team for their own style of weaving.)
The history of hand-loomed fabric runs long and deep within India, and indeed, other parts of the world. Although I’ve always appreciated textiles during my world travels, living in India created a far more personal relationship with both the form of the weaving process and the function of the clothing it creates. I’m happy to say that I carry the songs of the weavers along with me.
