Subarna Kalita

Weaver of eri silk

"At we are KAL, I am the silk weaver who is most involved and yes, I guess the one with the most expertise. Getting this feedback from Catherine feels truly empowering for me and makes me want to become even better. I have mostly woven with mill-spun cotton which is a completely different process compared to the handspun eri silk. I enjoy weaving this eri silk, as it also embodies my home, Assam."

vishwanath nair

weaver of Lambswool & pashmina 

"I have been weaving for decades and learnt so much in those years. Weaving definitely has a future in our age, however it is being neglected and the wages are very low. I specialised in weaving with high quality fibers such as pashmina and also the eri silk and lambswool blends. At KAL, we are creating products where I see my time well spent - and I am also very happy about the fairness concerning my income at KAL."
