Weavers of Kappaldoddi

Well the visit to Kappaldoddi was disappointing. The weaver who had called us and said that he was from a Weavers' Co-op, wanted us to work with him individually, which of course we would not. It was saddening to see that weaving here is suffering from the same problems as it was when I first visited in 1999. At that time in Dastkar Andhra we had high hopes of developing an Independent Weaver Group here, but it eventually failed because we were not able to instill principles of group working as we had hoped to.

More about the block printing later.
