The students tell us their stay has been the most amazing experience ever. The people and Bannari Amman Institute of Technology have definitely treated them like royalty.
In these past few weeks they have had many outings to visit garment and fabric manufacturing units which have been mind blowing, allowing an insight to how the fabrics are constructed, treated, dyed and seeing how a garment manufacturing unit works from a plain fabric to the hundreds and thousands of garments that are made in a single day!
They have also had several excursions - a city hidden on the very top of the beautiful mountains called Udhagamandalam, also know as Ooty.
In Ooty they visited three places, the High Field Tea factory, the amazing Botanical Gardens and the river in Ooty where they had a boat ride around the lake.
They've also had some really enjoyable workshops with some amazingly talented ladies teaching them traditional arts and crafts of India such as hand embroidery, terracotta jewellery making, glass painting, coffee painting, plaster of paris and silk thread jewellery making.
Finally they visited a small village where they all got to select thier saris to remake our Resene garments. Check out our blog for the full story and gallery of photos.
