Village of Weavers – Sarakapatna, Dhenkanal, Odisha

Sarakapatna village situated at a distance of 20 Kilometers from District headQuarter Dhenkanal. Even if in this scientific world, these weavers keep weaving sarees through handloom machines. If you ever visited by this village road you can see their work in front of most of the houses, women busy in collecting threads, some men you find doing colouring.

Their world is still different. They busy on weaving sarees which send to all over world by them or some private/ Govt Organisations. They are happy in their trade but do not know much about their fortune, If proper care and promotion not available from all of us, this art may be not available for us in next few years.

Is there anyone from Dhenkanal taking care about their life and future of this art?
