Khadi & Co by Bess Nielsen –
“Along a barely defined road in northern Benga, deep in the dense jungle some 200km from Calcutta, is a land where fig and banana trees and coconut palms border the shimmering oxbows of the Ganges. In a clearing near a village of ancient earth houses with palm-leaf roofs, you come across a cooperative where peasant farmers arrive on bicycles, brining lengths of silk and cotton cloth that have been woven on the looms in their villages.
Danish textile designer Bess Nielsen works with these people, making use of their techniques, which have changed little in the past 4000 years, and dividing her time between Paris and various parts of India – from Kerala to Nagaland, Rajasthan to Bengal.”
