About Dr. Megha X Close
Dr. Megha Phansalkar is the founder of Tisser, the diversity of the Indian culture is mirrored in the immense diversity of art and handicraft in our 29 states. But, while our economy remains in transition, the handicrafts sector is still reeling in from the fatal blow of the colonial rule. Our rural artisans and weavers continue to face challenges in terms of productivity, input and that of a fragmented value chain. This is exactly what Tisser has tried to facilitate and overcome since its inception.
