Assam


Reaching out to the borders of Bhutan, Burma and Bangladesh, Assam is a state of countless cultures, rites, languages, foods, and of course, craft. Assam is also the state with the highest number of handloom households in all of India. Weaving as well as spinning and natural dyeing belongs to the skills of many people, mostly women.

However, most of the wooden looms are for domestic use to make cloth for the family, such as the Assamese towel, called Gamosa. Yet, this practice is becoming less and less lucrative as very cheap clothing can be bought from the market.

 

We want to embrace the idea of making clothes from home,
in the backyard of the weaver’s house.
