The first picture of Sutanu's print was rather dark, so here is a better version which he has kindly lightened.
We also use this block for monochromatic prints, which gives a totally different effect. Altogether we have about 15 different variations of this popular design

Handloom weaver households do not have time to make breakfast, since the women are busy with bobbin winding. Little eateries like this one serve dosas and idlis which can be eaten there or taken home. This is our breakfast hotel when we visit Chirala.

Just back from visit to Wardha, where a malkha unit is running. They’re going to make organic malkha khadi spun on hand-operated charkhas from local cotton and I hope they’ll dye it in the lovely natural colours that Mukesh is producing right next door. They want to call it 'magan malkha' from Magan Sangrahalaya where the unit is housed

Malkha is expanding… besides the senior production unit we now have two more in Andhra, so 2500 metres of malkha, plain, or yarn-dyed in natural colours is now coming off the looms each month. Happily our marketing is keeping up with production and our order book is full.
