The necessary elements are in position to solidify the significance of weaving within the community and secure its enduring legacy. There is an interest in establishing a museum, aimed at preserving and appreciating the value of weaving. The weaving tradition is actively persisting, with a resurgence in individuals keen on learning this art, evident through increased enrollment in workshops. This art has the potential to be passed down to future generations. Notably, weavers are extending their reach by showcasing their kilims beyond the village, aiming to garner more recognition for this artistic form.
