Shiny Artifacts of the Past

Cannanore (Kannur), Kerala is known for its very high quality handloom. Using old fashioned sleight of hand, their weavers continue to produce yards and yards of beautiful fabric. While the younger generations have moved on to faster, more economically viable ways of making a living, these weavers still work to the rhythm of the loom. Their old HMT hand-wound watches tell them when to take a break and while they are away, the wooden rulers with their names etched on them keep guard over the silent looms.
