Synopsis: Weavers from seven different states of India share their experiences about weaving on the looms, from the royal silk weavers of ‘Patan Patola’ to the indigenous primitive tribal weavers of ‘Ringa’, along with other diverse cultural authentic weaves practiced by Indian weavers that are now striving hard to survive amidst the globalised modern world. As the unorganized handloom sector employs rural, semi-rural and tribal people of India, the current socio-economic, political and climatic changes are influencing weaver’s livelihoods relentlessly and rapidly today. The film documents the weavers and their weaves as they share their day-to-day struggles to continue these sustainable traditional weaving methods that have been passed on from one generation to another for thousands of years.
