India

Rehwa Society

Prized additions to an Indian bride's trousseau for centuries, the intricately woven gossamer saris of Maheshwar were saved from disappearing when Richard Holkar and then-wife Shalini Devi (Sally) first came to rural Maheshwar in the late 1960's and set about reviving the local craft and improving weavers' lives. The Rehwa Society sells its gorgeous hand-loomed saris, scarves, shawls, and yard goods—at startlingly reasonable prices—from a small shop at Ahilya Fort. It also provides free tours of the adjacent weaving workshops.
