I started weaving as a wage labour at the age of 16. After being associated with Varanasi Weavers Hub, I have gained information & knowledge and participated in various meetings, trainings and workshops on business skill development, design development, dye, colour matching, seasonal production etc. I used my learnings in my business and invested some savings to produce my own designs. It did well in the market and gradually my market outreach has increased. Today, I own 20 looms and also employ other weavers.
