Housewives produce for the world market - the lace makers of Narsapur

Working Papers, World Employment Programme Research, International Labour Office (WEP 10/WP 16): 142

The study examines a substantial household industry in Andhra Pradesh, India, in which secluded poor Christian and Hindu women produce lace which yields about 90% of the State's handicrafts export earnings. Western women who buy the lace doylies, shawls, etc. are linked with poor women producing the lace through an extensive network of male agents, traders and exporters.
