Heritage walk to explore handloom tradition

The 15th Heritage walk scheduled for April 15 will focus on handloom and handicraft tradition in Aurangabad.
The medieval art and crafts, which was synonymous with the city during pre-Independence, will be explored by experts during the weekly heritage trail.
Senior history expert Rafat Qureshi said, “Several prominent historical sites and areas around the city have been covered during past heritage walks. This time we will focus on the city’s handloom tradition during the next trail.”

He added, “Aurangabad was once popular for making Himroo, Pathani and Bidri handloom. The heritage walk will explore traditional hand-woven style of making these fabrics.”

The non-profit group Aurangabad History Society has been at the forefront of organising the heritage walk in the city on a weekly basis, with an aim to create awareness about local heritage.
“Awareness is the first step to conservation. Events like the heritage walks can make public aware about the local history and culture. We hope that such walks continue on a sustained basis with excellent public participation,” Qureshi said.
