Weaving holidays aren’t just for the handloom hunter


Shanmugapriya Thyagarajan organises holistic tours that offer a bit of everything, including weaving. "We've taken people to clusters in Kanchipuram, Madurai, Karaikudi, Tiruchi, Uraiyur and Thirubuvanam. The focus is on seeing the speciality in an area, including music, weaving, food and culture [and how they inform each other]," she says. "For instance, we recently did one to the Avudayar temple [Pudukkotai] with historian Pradeep Chakravarthy, to learn the link between it and local weaving patterns, which incorporates motifs like the Nattiya Kalai Mudra (signs of dance) or the horse."
