Anaak has partnered with the non-profit organization Kala Swaraj Foundation on their Magtha Project. Magtha means handloom in the local language of weavers in the Chhindwara district of Madhya Pradesh. With the mission to revive handloom weaving and integrate local craft production with local agricultural in the Sausar, Lodhikheda, and Mohgaon villages of Chhindwara, it was estimated that more than 160,000 weavers were active in the late 1800s, but sadly much of the region’s traditional artisanal culture was lost after machine weaving was introduced during British rule. Today. we are working to preserve this ancient craft and employ 500 handloom weaving families.
