Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This is a study of the silk weaving industry in
Kanchipuram, Madras State. The author begins by examining the social characteristics of the
silk weavers of the town with respect to caste, family structure, household organization,
and settlement pattern. She then turns to consideration of the economic organization of the
silk weaving industry and the effects of the co-operative movement on the industry's
development. Please note that throughout this source, the term 'weavers' is used as a label
for an occupational category rather than a caste designation.
