Castaway Clothing, which recently uveiled some new shirts made in India the old-school way, had some videos of madras fabric being loomed in Chennai, the city formerly known as Madras.
At my request Castaway has uploaded the videos to YouTube so we can all see them. Click play to watch the video below:
There are three, with this one being the longest. Check out the others here.
Thanks, Castaway, for this fascinating look at how our clothes are made! — CC
Great video! I’m always humbled everytime I travel internationally (particularly to Asiatic countries) by how resourceful and creative many of these folks are. Never afraid of hard work and such great craftsmen. I’ve brought back great artwork and such that inspires me to revel in and appreciate my work.
Enjoyed this video. Thanks.
The downtrodden of the world
Rather lugubrious thing to say.
That’s a nice way to analyze it.
