Traditional Industry in the New Market Economy The Cotton Handlooms of Andhra Pradesh

by Kanakalatha Mukund, B. Syama Sundari

Traditional Industry in the New Market Economy The Cotton Handlooms of Andhra Pradesh Synopsis

Based on primary and secondary data and extensive fieldwork, this book provides an in-depth study of handloom weaving in Andhra Pradesh, which is one of the most important handloom weaving regions in the country. It provides an alternative view and a corrective to the widespread notion that handloom weaving is inherently unviable and noncompetitive. Instead, Kanakalatha Mukund and Syama Sundari demonstrate that it is a dynamic sector with great market potential, given its links with national and international markets.
