Kotpad Weaving: The Story of a Race Against Time by Biswanath Rath
The Film tells the rich and fascinating story of a unique, timeless textile tradition practiced for centuries in the tribal region of Koraput, Odisha, now dwindling like many craft traditions. A natural dyeing process followed by the weaving of an awe-inspiring fabric adorned with nature-inspired tribal motifs is what brings global recognition to this small handloom textile.
