Weavers Of Banshko
Employs 350 Artisans
“Our mission is to preserve the art of handmade rugs and ensure it thrives for generations. We think of weavers as the roots of our tree – the healthier the roots, the healthier the tree!”
- Nitesh, President of Cooperative

Founded by two brothers, Kamlesh and Dinesh, this weaving cooperative was started over thirty years ago. Today, this cooperative remains a family business with a single mission: to keep the tradition and practice of weaving alive.

The group creates incredibly detailed, handwoven cotton rugs, and what makes theirs so special is how they’re woven – on the ground, placed so that the weaver sits on top of the rug in order to see what they’re creating. The result is a tight, intricate weave, one that can achieve shapes and curves where other techniques fall short. All of the cotton is dyed and spun in house, too, allowing for a beautiful array of colors and precision.

Today, this cooperative employs more than 300 artisans, all of whom live within a 30-mile radius of Banshko and many who have worked with the group for decades. And through their NGO, Weaving the Future, they work to train future artisans – specifically women – in the craft in order to keep it alive and well.
