Magic Weaves at Coimbatore

We recently visited an exhibition titled "Weaves" in Coimbatore. There was a dazzling & colorful array of cotton & silk fabrics, dresses, sarees & accessories on display. Participants were from very many different States of India Like Bengal, UP, Karnataka, Jammu & Kashmir & Andhra Pradesh. While wifey was busy shopping I was busy clicking. I was mistaken for a press photographer and in anticipation that some of these photos may find place in the next days newspapers I was allowed special privileges by the stall managers :)
Here is wishing you all a Merry Christmas & a Happy & Prosperous New Year 2012. Please make the festive season more meaningful - Try and weave some colorful magic into the fabric your own lives as well the lives of those around you.

  20. Lovely fabrics--could almost feel their textures.

    PS: The Anaconda Copper Mining Company took its name from the great snake because the ACM squeezed its workers, the earth, and local governments like a giant corporate Anaconda! The ACM dominated Chile for many years too.
