Handloom Weaving

 A”handloom” is a loom that is used to weave fabrics without the use of electricity. The manipulation of the foot pedals to lift the warp has to be in sync with the throwing of the shuttle which carries the weft yarn. A perfect weave demands coordination between mind and body.

Handloom weaving was done by both genders but men outnumbered women partially due to the strength needed to batten. Spinning  the thread and attend to finishing. Later we obtain the thread from the spinning mill.
