Nanoor: Weaving A Success Story

Nanoor in Birbhum district of West Bengal is the hub of this all-women, intricate tapestry where 604 artists from 311 families are weaving a tale of success. These women have also revived the traditional art of making layered quilts with intricate patterns and stories. Kantha was traditionally a leisure engagement for Bengali women, when they converted old clothes into quilts and used them as the canvas to stitch their creative yearns. Today Kantha offers livelihood to thousands of rural women.Most of the women used to work for low wages. Typically, they were provided designs and raw material and paid for each piece of work. The women never ventured out of home and had little idea of the high prices that their intricate works of art fetch in the market.

Kulia Tantubay Samity is the artists’ collective in Nanoor. A two-storied common facilities centre (CFC) provides much needed work space and storage space. The collective organizes an annual village festival of Kantha artists.

The art form is now a force multiplier of sorts. The most encouraging aspect of this exercise is the willingness of most artists to take the plunge as entrepreneurs. Examples of accessing institutional credit for investment in business are already there and most women artists are now ready to evolve as owner-creators. Tajkira, Amina, Lovely, Papiya are women who are now giving leadership and are running businesses. They have overcome restrictions on mobility and are travelling across India and to far away countries like Lithuania and Denmark.

Till 2005, being a full-time homemaker, Tajkira Begum was raising her four children and had never stepped out of her house. But when her beautiful Kantha embroidery started getting recognized as a ‘skill’, it led to her metamorphose into an entrepreneur running a Kantha enterprise of 300 women with a client base spread across India. She has showcased her work at Lithuania.
