Weaving with Compassion

Meera Goradia

Weaving is as much about the weavers as it is about the craft. Weaving with Compassion: The Rikhyas of Kutch offers insight into the life and work of the Meghwal weavers of Kutch. It calls attention to the source of their creativity and the spiritual wisdom that moors them to their craft. Drawing on interviews with weavers, their reflections on their craft and labour, and onsite photographs, the book documents a century of historical change. Equally it celebrates the imagination that has sustained the weavers’ craft and their social lives and relationships.
