The Handloom School, Maheshwar

Seeing the general trend of  traditional weavers’ children moving to urban centres for better career prospects, The Handloom School (THS) began as an initiative by Women Weave, to empower young weavers to adopt weaving as an occupation, to enhance their skills and give them a direction.

The Handloom School (THS) initiative is nurturing young weavers to make the most of their heritage, to deal directly with the market, to understand market trends and to value their rich heritage.  And to be very proud of themselves.

Most of the weavers among the rural weaving communities of India lack business acumen and fail to get the true worth of the handmade product. Entrepreneurial and business education as well development of soft skills constitute a major part of the curriculum.
