Making malkha local

Plans are afoot to source cotton from local farmers for one of the Malkha units, and also to try to start weaving there. It'll be a great step forward to get cotton fresh from the field. Introducing weaving into a non-weaving area though is not so easy, because pre-loom processes such as warping and sizing have become  specialist jobs now, and the people who do it need to service at least 20-30 looms to make it feasible.
