Celebrating our handloom weavers and their amazing creations this month.  Starting with the weavers who work on our lightweight textiles in Kerala, southern India.

The above image shows Shobha creating a textile on a large wooden handloom setup in an open air environment that is covered.  You can see how lush and tropical it is there.

Such a beautiful smile!  She was chuckling a bit after seeing my attempt at working on her handloom.  I'll share a video later of this, which is pretty much guaranteed to make you laugh too.

This is Sarojini, another radiant and talented weaver that is very highly skilled.  She makes weaving on a handloom look easy, but it requires a lot of strength, agility and skill.

See below some of the textiles that are made by this weaving cooperative:
