Hand looming is a technique that produces beautifully soft and bright fabrics. Made in villages outside of Kolkata, the cotton thread is hand-spun and then hand dyed before being delivered to the weaver’s home, where it is woven into fabric on wooden looms.
Hand looming is incredibly time-consuming. It takes a whole day to produce enough fabric to make a single dress. But once finished, the fabric has a richness in texture unique to the hand looming process.
