Dhakar Weavers in Katmandu


Today I visited some of the Dhaka weavers living on the outskirts of the beautiful town of Bhaktapur, just next to Katmandu. These weavers are displaced from the north of Nepal, and live in tiny rooms with their bed, loom, and cooking pots. I am hoping to be developing some new products with them through the organization, SABAH Nepal. Who have invited me here to look at collaborating.




The patterns are all made by placing the yarns in by hand, and the motifs are keep in each womans mind. They follow no designs or charts.
