TheWeaversCo

Our Story

With an aim to provide better connections and opportunities for the handloom weavers, spinners, dyers, printers and other associated artisans, we envisioned a platform for them to network professionally and to connect and collaborate directly with designers, boutiques, retailers and other buyers.

Egged on by the weaver and artisan community we work with, we started working towards our vision of supporting the weaver community – to make their voices heard, to increase their market awareness, to connect them with new markets so that they would stop being hidden ‘makers’ for others. The year 2019 saw the idea of the initiative we call TheWeaversCo being born.

Through this initiative, we hope there would be new connections and collaborations, as well as strengthening of the old.
