Handweaving in India is over 2000 years old! It's an eco-friendly, non-mechanized process that employs more than 43 million people in India, contributing to 95% of the world's handwoven fabrics. It is a strenuous process that requires perfect rhythm and coordination. The weaver uses a pedal to apply pressure to ensure an even, close-knit weave. The mechanism of the loom, almost always worked with bare feet, permits the weaver to judge the feel of the yarn.
