Pochampally 1/undefined by Tripoto


Kalyan Konduri
How little we value our traditional arts, crafts and weaves is evident from our almost zero knowledge of their history and how these arts came into being. Hardly anybody seems to know about how Pochampally handloom art started, the internet gives you vague information, even the locals and the weavers themselves didn't seem to know much, they told us the village has known this art for more than 80 years and beyond that, "it goes back to very old times", they told us !We were then shown the sarees that were ready for sale. As the weavers unfolded each saree, we realised why handloom sarees are precious, every saree was sheer beauty, almost impossible to believe that they were woven by hand !
