I'm not sure if there are enough English ones to demonstrate WP:GNG, but there might well be plenty more in other languages. Zeromonk (talk) 09:29, 25 June 2019 (UTC)

Kuruhina Shetty[1][2] is a Hindu caste from South India that traditionally followed the occupation of weaving[3], mostly found in the Indian states of Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.


Most members of this community were professional weavers and used to mainly produce pure cotton and silk apparel. They were accordingly primarily concentrated around major textile centres in the northern and southern part of Karnataka.[4]
