The art of spinning is coming back, thanks to the efforts of people like Madhav Sahasrabudhe

There is an air of peace and calm as you walk on to the terrace of Kavade Attic on 1st Main in Sheshadripuram. The cosy ambience is set up with cane mats on the floor and lots of charkhas (spinning wheels). Madhav Sahasrabudhe, a mechanical engineer from Pune, catches your eye.

Dressed in a khadi kurta and trousers made from the yarn he spun, the man is engrossed in spinning. Madhav is in the city for the recently-concluded two-day spinning workshop, organised by Kavade Attic. As he spins, the spinner talks about the art and the calming effect it has on one’s mind.
