However before subscribing please note: Over 87% of handloom weavers live and work in rural areas (NCAER Census 2009-10); this percentage is similar for other craftspeople and traditional artists. Thus we recommend that the best way to contact them is to travel to locations indicated in the directory. In this list about 20,000+ craftspeople have mobile numbers listed these numbers are sometimes inaccessible for reasons of poor connectivity or a lapsed recharge. While updation is weekly this is a ground reality.
