Kept alive by only 12,000 weavers today, Chanderi weaving is a tradition over five centuries old. Intricately woven by hand, it carries a distinctive sheer look, perfect for balmy summer days. This tradition is slowly dying out to cheap industrial replicas. In supporting this craft you bring back sustainable livelihoods to remote villages whose only wealth is craft history. Grassroot works with artisans in rural India to bring employment opportunities back, thereby making every village a self-sustaining unit.
