Weaver, Socio-Economic, Health, Living Condition

Abstract [English]

Based on a bio-statistical survey, this abstract offers a summary of the weaver community's statistical profile. Data on the economic situation, education, occupation, housing, and health of the weaver community were gathered through the survey. The survey's pilot study reveals that the weaver community has substantial social and economic difficulties. The majority of weavers make less than the minimum wage, making up a considerable percentage of their meagre income. The degree of education is also poor; a large proportion of weavers have little access to formal education, healthcare, power, clean water, and sanitary facilities. Poor housing circumstances are common, with many weavers residing in cramped, subpar dwellings. The poll also showed that the weaver community has a strong feeling of community and resilience in spite of these difficulties. Numerous weavers conveyed a strong dedication to their trade and the preservation of traditional weaving methods and abilities. Additionally, they showed that they were eager to take part in education and training programmes to advance their knowledge and possibilities for earning money. The bio-statistical survey's overall findings emphasise the necessity of laws and initiatives targeted at resolving the socioeconomic problems the weaver community faces. Initiatives focused at promoting locally created and artisan textiles as well as efforts to increase access to healthcare, education, and other basic services have the potential to help the well-being of the weaver community and advance ethical and sustainable practices in the textile sector. The community of weavers has experienced a number of difficulties recently, such as competition from less expensive imported textiles, shifts in fashion preferences, and the effects of industrialization and automation on the textile sector. Therefore, this essay is created to help readers understand how the textile business contributes. The article discusses the socioeconomic standing, health, and recommended lifestyle model of weavers.
