Tales from Maheshwar(1/3) We thought it would be nice to dig out pictures from our image library to reminisce the pre corona days. We miss so many activities we used to do, we miss these lush green vegetable markets for sure. Fun fact, here in Maheshwar we do not have holiday on Sunday instead our day off is Tuesday because it's the local 'haat' or market day. Village folk gather at one ground with their produce and the residents come to shop for their weekly provisions. All our weavers get their wages on Monday and shop on Tuesday. This customary haat has not been happening for the past three weeks. Now the farmers and local manufacturers have no place to sell their produce and hence no income. To help the community of Maheshwar we request to contribute generously.

We thank our staff members who went across the area to each artisans house and provided them with advance cash for their provisions. We remain closed till March 31st so far and we are glad we were able to secure our artisans with enough cash till that period. Meanwhile, we request you to keep shopping by logging into our wholesale account. Your orders will be delivered as soon as it is absolutely safe to dispatch parcels. Link to the wholesale shop is in bio. We are also coming up with exciting offers becuase we want to liquidate our stock to sustain our artisans and support our fixed expenses. #corona #supporthandloom #supportartisans #womenempowerment #womenweave #lifeintimesofcorona #shophandmade.

Post 2/2 Our women are enthused with their own creation. In thie diverse group we have women who have been involved in each step of creating the beautiful pink eri silk fabric that the lady in the center of the circle has draped around herself. Every participant has touched the fabric in someway,someone was involved in bobbin winding, some in warping, some in quality check, weaving etc. We are delighted to see their response to their creation. Their chance to cherish their weaves, something they they spent atleast 15 days nurturing has finally taken shape.

We salute their indomitable spirit, their enthusiasm and grit. This women's day we salute our ladies, for showing up each day, for running the organisation and their home equally well, for standing with their families, for supporting their peers and society alike. We can't thank them enough for doing what they do each day everyday without fail without excuse. We feel privileged to have known them, to have worked with them, to have learnt from them and to continue to do so. They stand up at the face of adversity yet they know how to celebrate every moment to the fullest. We are celebrating Women's Day with lots of games and food this evening. Join us, comment, send you our wishes while we keep posting updates from Maheshwar. #womenempowerment #womenartisans #womenweave #womenweavers #womensday.
