The cloth is hand spun and hand woven by local villagers in Shivapet (around 120 km east of Belagavi in Karnataka).

Through this initiative we not only support villagers' livlihood but also try to preserve our traditional heritage and work culture.

All pics are from original weavers (जुलाहा, बुनकर).

Process:
- Raw cotton is obtained from local Khadi Gram Udyog

- Cotton is hand spun using Amber Charkha (8 spindles) into yarns which is then washed and sun dried (see details on Amber Charkha on http://www.khadigujarat.in/8spindle-amber-charkha-scheme.html),

- Yarns are put on bobbins using conventional rotors

- Bobbins are assembled together (around 300) to be woven in handloom

There is around 20% loss in material weight during manufacturing i.e. 1 kg of raw cotton gives around 800 gms of finished cloth.
