Handweaving in India is over 2000 years old! The craft has stayed true to its roots even in the face of severe competition from power looms. This eco-friendly, non-mechanised process 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. Handloom fabrics are defined by their soft texture and known to be more durable than machine-made offerings.
Our products are meticulously handcrafted by master artisans one piece at a time, therefore slight variations from one item to the next are to be expected. Such distinctions will make your purchase special and truly one of a kind.
