The Weaver

Madurai

If you ever got a towel with some silky white treaths, you know it's made by this weaver.

In Sellur there are many manifacturies where they make towels and loungies, the loin-cloth for men.
Mostly women and some elder men are working on this old weaving machines. Some factories replaced already those machines by fully automatic ones.
