Training to run Sampling Unit
Surender from Little Flower Khadi Village Industry Leprosy Centre has come to MESH Design Studio to learn how to run a sampling unit. The week has been spent teaching him how to read various kinds of weaving specification sheets...we were happy to have Narayan come back to conduct those sessions...after many years as our in-house weaver we thought he was the best person for the job. Other sessions have been how to prepare his own specs and code and label and store them for future reference. Time in the main office with Deepa looking at all the details on a purchase order and being reminded of the need to communicate, communicate and communicate and a session with Bachan who looks after stock records. Little Flower bills are like a closed secret, we would love a few more details, either codes and purchase order numbers or sizes and descriptions.
We have had long discussions about the best way to start working out what is a fair wage and also how important it is to ensure sustainability. I think he has learned something and we are looking forward to seeing how he gets on producing some new tartan silk scarves designed by an from the National Institute of Fashion and Technology, Bhopal.
We were also happy to hear that there has been some experimenting in Little Flower with linen and soon with a linen cotton blend; It will be exciting to see what they come up with.
