Mallesham

Machine is used for weaving Pochampalli silk sari, an exquisite tradition of double ikat style of weaving with variety of colors and intricate designs. It reduces a very tedious and cumbersome hand winding process of yarn. Traditional process involves to and fro moving of the hand thousands of time in a span of four-five hours.

Before weaving various patterns on the loom, a hand winding process of yarn is required in the traditional ‘Tie & Dye’ Pochampalli silk sareetradition. This is a very tedious and cumbersome process and involves to and fro moving of the hand thousands of time in a span of four-five hours. Mallesham (37), a traditional weaver, has made a device to mechanize this process and relieve women, who generally do this task, from the drudgery involved.
