“Yes the power looms are everywhere but I really don’t know how to use them. And at this age, I’m not sure how I’ll learn. What we need is the support to market and avenues to sell what we produce. Handloom doesn’t get the subsidies power loom gets. I don’t make as much money as I would if I had the power loom but I’m very happy with the quality of work I produce.” Srinivas, handloom weaver, Sircilla, Telangana.
