Tantuvi works with Ikat weavers in South India reinterpreting traditional patterns and weaves of the region and dhurrie weavers of North India for their flat weave rugs. By working collaboratively with hand-loom co-operatives, Tantuvi helps sustain the artisans and craft to preserve their intimate traditions of hand spun, dyed, and woven cottons and silks of the Eastern Ghats and Rajasthan. Through the co-operative women are being trained in all aspects of weaving. Although men still dominate positions of master weaver and dyer, more women are weaving and contributing to the process. Tantuvi strives to provide income for women and enable future generations the chance for improved education and a stable livelihood.
