Weaver Hut

Bano Fatima

Weaver’s Hut is a social enterprise dedicated to empowering artisan communities in the Barabanki district of Uttar Pradesh. Set up by Bano Fatima and Nabila Kidwai to work with vulnerable families, primarily women on their socio-economic development and also to promote education for the future generations.

The weavers’ community weaves cotton and viscose fabric and stoles on handloom structures. It is a traditional art, existing in the community for generations. With textile mills taking the lead and lack of support from government, the traditional art suffers from intense competition, often losing out. Weaver’s Hut has become the platform that is empowering the weavers’ community through socio-economic interventions, including production process interventions, social development and education based-initiatives.

Bano attended our Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow program in 2010.
