Handloom weavers are almost extinct and more so these weavers meeting potential buyers at homes on requests. Powerloom has eaten away the shine for many weavers in Kanchipuram.
In my childhood many times these weavers would visit the homes in Chennai and many ladies come together on pre-appointed times to check out the Silk sarees and choose from the offer.
One such scene in my home, but nowadays not so frequently. (or almost close to Nil)
