Ripan Biswas, a weaver who hails from Phulia has taken up his father’s profession. Lakshman Biswas, father of Ripan, has been weaving Linen, Jhamdhani sarees, Bengal Cotton for generations and has passed on his skills to his son. Ripan discontinued his studies after high school and decided to join his father due to economic conditions. Ripan says, “Ekhane kono kaaj nei (there is no work here)," he says. His father is a weaver, so are his uncles and cousins. “Men my age are moving to Gujarat or Kerala, even if to work as day laborers. They earn better," says Lakshman Biswas Over the years, Ripan learnt the art of weaving and designing and has since made steady progress through his passision and his will to survive. He is proactive in learning the weaving techniques and now had employed over 15 weavers to help him out in his production activity. When asked Ripan about what inspires him, his response “I am inspired from the results that we have achieved over the years of working within the community. The weavers value their textile tradition and conserve it. Their weavings have considerably improved since the beginning and now even more community members as willing to be part of the weaver’s associations”. “People were so fixated on exports that they forgot the domestic market," says Biswas, who works with over 1,000 weavers in the region. He believes that the credit for the success of Phulia should go to the highly skilled weavers. “Their versatility and adaptability meant that they were suitable for designers. These traits gave them an edge over weavers from different clusters.". It is because of the efforts of the designers that the Tangail is now known beyond West Bengal. He says, “Every day is a new day and start over is the name of the game.” and it is this hope that keeps him energized and moving forward. He works with the patience of a monk and the precision of a surgeon. The click-clack of multiple looms mixing with Bangla songs playing over a speaker and the Hare Krishna chants of fellow weavers reach a mesmerizing crescendo.
