This article will show that by looking at authorship or claims to originality as foundations for the semiotic production of artefacts, it is possible to perform a critique of non-textual commodities. This proposal will be justified through reference to a political economy where ‘objects’ are not considered ‘works’. To substantiate this premise it will examine how a particular realm of traditional knowledge has been imagined, institutionalised, and carried into the present in South India.

Keywords: Postcolonial, Globalization, Commodity Consumption, Modernism, Handloom Weaving in India
