weave cotton cloth that are very soft and have lively and colourful patterns “The women mostly weave lufungs (sarongs) and maplas (stoles) for themselves and for festivals” says Lahiri “Traditionally they used natural colours on the fabric although many are now using artificial substitutes We’re trying to revive the use of natural dyes” Along with the Uttar Banga Bon-Jan Shramajeevi Mancha the Hast Karigar Society organised a group of 15 Rabha women from a village in the Buxa forests early last year and provided them with the opportunity to earn a livelihood through their weaving and at the same time work to revive their craft This year the weavers from Buxa have been joined by a group from the Mendabari forest village in Chilapata forest “When we started the revival project last year we had included a few dupattas” says Lahiri “We were overwhelmed with the response we got everywhere — Delhi Mumbai Chennai — and that is why we decided to include the Rabha weaving traditions as a full
