Patamadai, a small town resides along the banks of the Tamaraparani river, 20 Kms away from Tirunelveli in Tamilnadu. This place is world famous for its silken mats woven from grass. The majority of mats made in here have cotton warps and korai wefts. The process of mat weaving is time consuming and painstaking. This handicraft industry has gone through a cycle of transition from being most coveted to the most ignored. Producers had changed the method of production but off late many of them are reverting back to traditional methods of dyeing and processing the korai grass. Mass production now requires more finance. Which financial institution these producers should approach for help?
