Parsis from well to do families also used tanchoi cloth to make footware. Parsi women adopted this fashion from China. This piece is woven by master weaver Kaikhushro S. Joshi, a descendant of the Joshi family. He made an abortive attempt to revive tanchoi weaving following the call for swadeshi by Mahatma Gandhi. He setup large factory in Surat and employed weavers. His factory produced many beautiful pieces. Unfortunately Joshi had to closedown his factory for want of support from buyers.
