Welcome to Chenetha Colour Weaves
Chenetha Color Weaves is a social enterprise for development and marketing of hand woven products,which are sourced from resource and income disadvantaged, but skilled weavers of rural Andhra Pradesh. We strive to provide fair value and wages to our weavers, especially women and maximize their socio-economic gain through their shareholding in the enterprise.
Karghaa is our exquisitely designed hand woven collection that combines the traditional with the contemporary. Like Chenetha, it means - a handloom, signifying the labour, intimacy, uniqueness and human touch of our products.
Unique Value of Our Products
We work in partnership with more than 280 Traditional Handloom Weaver families with whom we will have a strong social, economical, legal and emotional bondage. As such our products offer you an opportunity to enhance the livelihoods of Traditional Handloom Weavers.
