The diversity in Indian culture is reflected in the diversity of its handlooms.  The choice of colours, fabrics, prints, weaves and embroideries brings forth the varieties of each region.

Handlooms continue to be the pride of the nation earning revenue and accolades from across the globe. Silk and handloom cottons are a part of every important ritual and no occasion is complete without them.

As an economic activity, handloom weaving provides livelihood to millions of families and is the largest cottage industry. There is hardly a village which does not boast of the traditional art of our weavers but the advent of power looms and industrialisation have given a beating to this sector. Unable to withstand competition from them, many weaver families have moved out of their traditional occupation and today, the number of traditional weavers is on the decline.

With an objective to create markets for weavers by providing direct access to customers and revive the dying arts, Weaves-the cotton and silk spectrum, is being organised in many cities across the country by M/S Revathi Creative Communications Pvt Ltd, Hyderabad. The exhibition has come to Bengaluru as well. It is being held simultaneously in two places — at ASR Convention Hall, 109/1, Outer Ring Road, near Rammurthy Nagar Signal, Banaswadi and Sri Rajhans Convention Hall, Industrial Town, Rajajinagar, till January 10, 11am to 8pm.
