After producing the yarn and dyeing with the perfect colour, the fabric is sent to be starched. Every step in the process requires hard work and sleek skills which come from years of experience. Women and men work together hand in hand to develop these pieces of fabric. Post calculations and warping the yarn, they are forwarded for denting and drafting. It takes about 3-4 hours for the entire process, for every single saree, to complete the threading. When done, the materials are sent for weaving in pit looms (a weaving technique used widely across Bengal).
After the pre-looming process is complete, the fabrics are processed in the pit looms. The fabric is fed, first through bamboo drums and then into the loom to start weaving. Designs covering the fabric are native elements and have its own stark presence. On the looms the designs are skillfully crafted by our expert artisans and woven with fine precision. Every piece is a labour of love.
