The documentary was created as part of curated exhibition of Rohi: Stories of the Shoemakers of Kachchh. It was fifth curated exhibition and for year 2015 we choose leather craft. It narrates lives and work of leather artisans (belong to Meghwal community) of Kachchh. This is a result of 4 months of field work in the various leather craft producing clusters of Kachchh. This master piece was created by Kasturi Gandhi, a movie maker based in Mumbai.

The following video is a documentary movie on the lives and work of women weavers who are associated with recycled plastic weaving project of Khamir. It narrates the various dimensions of their lives and how a small initiative by a non-profit have impacted their lives and the way they weave. The documentary is created by Kasturi Gandhi and we received generous support from Nabard SDC Rural Innovation Fund to prepare it.
