We visited Shyamji and his group of dyers, spinners and weavers when we were in western Gujarat India. Shyamji is passionate about using natural dyes when he works with cotton and wool. He proudly showed us his "live" inground vats of indigo. He is working tirelessly to keep the Indian hand weaving tradition relevant. We were lucky enough to meet his mother and auntie too. The extended family lives and works together.
