Handloom Weaving

  

 

Shrouded in antiquity, handloom weaving in India has ancient seats and even the Rigveda and the epics of the Ramayana and the Mahabharata dwell upon the craft of weaving at length. The wonderful art that combines generations of expertise and skill of weavers, gives handloom weaving its highest appeal. Even after the penetration of latest technology into the textile industry, the aesthetic charm of hand-weaving holds its own place in the fabric world.

 


Rajavivaha with 108 years experience in Silk, continues to play a significant part in carrying the heritage of Handloom Weaving.

 


The handloom weaving process consists of weaving one set of threads of yarn (the warp) with another (the weft). The warp threads are stretched lengthwise and weft threads are woven crosswise in the loom, to obtain the cloth. The resultant cloth is an exquisite hand woven fabric that has its own unique designs. Silk, zari, etc. are interlaced with one another to obtain a cloth. The design, quality and aesthetic appeal of handloom fabrics have given them their own niche in the textile realm.
