The event is the brainchild of Mythili Rajendran, IAS, who took over as Managing Director of Co-Optex last September. She was determined to bring about many changes in the organization affected by the epidemic.

“I came across 17 mini looms that were in the attic, lying unused for many years. I repaired, overhauled and functionalized six of them. We then decided to set up a loom center on the campus, ”says Maithili, who hopes to popularize the art of weaving.

“For special children who need to go with their teacher or parents, we will provide loom and cotton for free. For other school children, the rates will be subsidized, "says Mythili," These mini looms are compact and anyone can learn to spend some time on them. One can master the art even by a novice. "

The loom can be controlled by prior appointment at Co-Optex, Egmore, from 10 am to 5 pm. For details, call 9840925579.
