 The weavers of India are its biggest assets. It¶s a marvel that an ancient art such as weavingstill exist in our country, but the carriers of this tradition are the least respected lot in thisnation. Weaving is skill that is done with utter brilliance and is passed on from generation togeneration. Throughout history there are evidences that show that weavers have always beena victim of a staunch hierarchical system. Being at the bottom of the system they fall prey tothe extreme forms of exploitation. Since the time of Kalidasa, weavers were the poorest of the lot, the British invasion and their policies of free trade further pushed them to the loweststrata of the society (economically). With the independence of India it was expected that theart of weaving would a get a refurbishment and that there would be an elevation in the statusof weavers. However our government was not able to meet these expectations.The purpose of this paper is to familiarise with the current conditions of the weavers and to proposethe importance of social protection and social security to the custodians of this ageless art.Therefore during the course of the paper we will discuss;the historical background of weaving industry, the types of weavers, their industrial organization, the wages and workingconditions of the weavers, the government initiatives towards this industry, the impact of globalization on the weavers and finally in conclusion the evidence of a presence of initiatives by the state to protect the weaving class.
