While driving towards Todos Santos, we came across this Blanket Industry, where they have this Loom on which the Weaver works his magic. It's amazing to see the whole weaving process, and how a piece of textile is created. I had this magnificent chance to try my hands on this harness device. The word 'Handmade Fabric' took a whole different meaning.... made me feel more respect & fascination for the whole process. I had seen this art in India too, where hand woven fabric still holds a significant share in Textile industry. The digital age has taken away the satisfaction and fulfillment one feels after creating 'something' with their own hands. Now I feel that may be I should also learn this art. Will definitely look into this.... wonder where they teach here. :)
