LOW POWER L.E.D. TASK LIGHTS FOR WEAVERS
LOW POWER L.E.D. LIGHTS FOR WEAVERS
Hand loom weaving of sarees, textiles , cloth etc. is an intricate process. The process of matching designs, checking the weave pattern etc require the weaving area to be lit. Weavers used to use filament lamps or Flourecent tubes both of which required a lot of electricity. Regular availability of electricity was an issue with several weavers specially for those based in rural areas. Keeping in view all the above needs a LED light light with a special optics was designed, this light unit provides excellent illumination, consumes very low power of just 6 watts as compared to 40 Watts FL tube, can operate on solar or grid charged batteries providing back up in event of power failure and also is a very low cost solution.
TARGET AREA / POPULATION
The target area for this system is for weavers and similar artisans specially in rural areas.
INNOVATION and DESIGN FACTOR
