Handloom silk is woven in a variety of designs and forms throughout India. Each state has its own weaving style, and the motifs vary from one state to the next. Punjab’s phulkari, Rajasthan’s tie-and-dye, Banaras’ brocade, West Bengal’s Daccai, and Andhra Pradesh’s and Odisha’s Ikkats are just a few of India’s precious jewels. Shuttle-pit looms made of wood and rope are used to weave handloom silks. The dyed yarn for these sarees is outsourced, and master weavers weave the warp and weft yarns on the loom to create bewitching sarees. The people who weave the fabric also make these yarns. It’s fascinating to see how people living in squalid conditions with few resources to meet even their most basic needs of food, water, and shelter weave such beautiful fabrics and stick to their craft no matter what. It is up to us to learn from them how to value and respect our traditional heritage so that it does not perish.
