Structural adjustments resulting of the integration of an economy in the global trade system harms most traditional activities, notably handloom. The weavers are today 6.5 million in India and the majority lives in extreme poverty, with a daily remuneration of 1 USD. Traditions of exception are also vanishing under the pressures of market forces and a world heritage is under threat.

Once the skills necessary to the autonomy of the weavers of a particular cluster are acquired, JULAHA pulls out of the concerned territory while ensuring the take over of the activities closely related to handloom by local services suppliers.
