Just found this image of a remarkable woman in India from our last trip.
This woman taught me to spin sari silk waste fibres using a handmade drop spindle. Hardest task I have ever tried to achieve! The yarn produced was insane. I have to say that spinning these waste fibres is an achievement and artistic endeavour in itself, never mind the ethical products you produce with this yarn! Artisans at work. The only way to describe these women. A talented and inspirational group of individuals!
