Bengal Handloom – A magnificent world


Hi everybody,

Welcome to Bengal Handlooms!

Over the next few days, months, years and decades(hopefully!) I’ll take a tour through the fascinating, if somewhat tragic world of Bengal handlooms and the immensely gifted artisans who create one wonderful weave after another.

You are invited, too!
