New Delhi: An interactive exhibition on the textures, dyes, and sounds of handloom weaving familiarises the viewer about the backstory of a simple woven cotton fabric and the skill that goes into it. The exhibition titled “Many yarns of the cotton handloom story” is open till September 3 at the India International Centre (IIC) here. It presents myriad objects to recreate the weaver’s context: pictures of the handloom process, tools used by the weaver, yarn used in dyeing and the fabrics woven. The exhibition narrates the story of how cotton is made into a fabric, what tools and materials are used, and what capacity a weaver needs to create a normal everyday fabric, Latha Tummuru, from the organizers Dastkar Andhra, told IANS. The exhibition puts focus on the medium-skilled weaver and the medium-range handloom products, in a discourse that celebrates high-end weaving and products. (IANS)
