Meet the Designer/Weavers
Handwoven GumCha is the product of hard-working farming families. When not in the fields growing rice and other crops, each adult member of the family needs to stay productive. Every hour of every day, sun up till past dark, becomes vital for the survival of the community.
Weaving and selling the GumCha is an essential element of the subsistence farming economies of our area, and, for generations has been the source of income needed to make ends meet for farm families.
Every time she loads her loom the weaver chooses the tread, the colors, the patterns and creates a unique design.
