“It takes three to four days to make one piece of kerang after the loom is fixed. The kerang weaving process is a part of our cultural activity for all the Gadaba women. I weaved my own cloths and wore them for many years. My old age and eyesight problem both discouraged me from weaving. I stopped weaving and other women who used to weave in our village also stopped weaving slowly. The last remains of my kerang threads are still there.”
