When Machani Somappa was president of the Yemmiganur Weavers’ Coop. Society, a great yarn scarcity hit the region. To battle this challenge, he formulated for the first time the idea of cooperative spinning mills which was a modern engineering marvel at the time. The mills came with dust control systems, humidification systems, and technologies never seen before in the industry. After the scarcity, Yemmiganur Coop. became the first to successfully develop a strain of irrigated cotton that could be produced throughout the country on a large scale. The Machani principles of technology, engineering and design thus played a crucial role in ensuring employment for many as well as establishing the significance of weavers throughout the nation.
Svasa Homes, the revolutionary real estate project in Basavanagudi by Machani Group, is a modern day manifestation of these principles. Svasa Homes enshrines cutting-edge technology, engineering, and design in every experience touchpoint. The buildings have been shaped using MIVAN formwork technology, a construction practice far more durable and with smoother finish compared to industry standards.
