Despite the fact that weavers were the second largest community after farmers and one of the biggest providers of employment, weavers in India have been facing several problems since time immemorial. Millions of weavers are working out of their homes in the absence of electricity and poor infrastructure. One of the major problems is the negligible amount of credit available to them. Defective policy, neglect and competition from multinationals have taken a toll on the communities of traditional weavers in the country. Taking note of these tragic issues, Shravan Ramaswamy, as a well-acclaimed fashion designer of Hyderabad, plays his honest part by paying a tribute to weavers of the nation through AN ODE TO WEAVES & WEAVERS – an annual fashion show of his own, in which he showcases more than 100 different and rare weaves from the remotest of locations in India every year.
