Babu and Gauri weaving mara vera scarf on pit-loom

The long process of pit-loom weaving begins with preparing the warp yarns on a wooden frame. More than Eight thousand locally sourced cotton yarns are manually wrapped around the wooden pegs by Gauri which takes her up to five days to complete.

Hand weaving

Carefully selected silk yarns are used as the weft which are filled onto bobbins using a hand charkha to achieve the highest quality lustre and feel.
