Smita Paul discovered the world of handloom while on assignment in India as a freelance journalist. Despite a surging Indian economy, weavers, farmers and other members of the rural poor are faced with worsening economic conditions. Government sponsored subsidies for handloom associations which helped supply raw materials, micro-loans, marketing and design assistance, have virtually disappeared, leaving many artisans without the guidance and financial support they need to pass their talents to the next generation.
