How It's Made
This textile is produced on hand-operated looms, one of the oldest methods of textile production. Hand weaving involves interlinking a set of vertical threads (warp) with a set of horizontal threads (weft,) meticulous planning and complex estimation, depending on the design.
In this fabric, two different yarn colors are used - one in the weft and the other in warp.
