For 5 Rupees (10 U.S cents) i could buy these used rice sacks at the neighborhood grocery.

Some use them as household
disposables such as a rug for wiping feet before stepping into a home. THey might not use a god/goddess printed one and that I found is the reason packaging rarely comes with gods print, for avoiding the disgrace of trashing these.

So to my joy, in Tamil Nadu I could find cotton rice sacks with beautiful textile prints of the colorful various Hindu gods. Also the Tamil script was in print as seen here.

My friend's Mani neighbor was a home based tailor and turned it into a protecting bag for the projector I carried with me for use through 10 months backpacking southern India. He also kindly refused any pay. Later I edited, printed and gifted him a collage from all daily action photos I took of him, wife, daughter.
