Manjibhai Jivabhai

Manjibhai Jivabhai’s passion for weaving arose when he was taught by his father as a child. Taking pride in the fact that the legacy runs in their bloody, Manjhibhai is the 3rd generation weaver and has been dedicated to this craft for 40 years. Manjhibhai has trained his sons, aged 21 and 22, to weave, strongly believing that the legacy should be taken forward by the youth.

Manjibhai Jivabhai is the only Tangaliya weaver to receive the National Award in 2015 by Smt Smriti Irani ji, Hon’ble Minister of Textiles.
