Hand woven are sarees that are made from fabric that are woven by hand or an unpowered or hand operated loom. As the process is completely done by hand, a single saree takes about two to three days or even more based on the pattern and designed created on it.
Many families in villages take handloom weaving as their occupation to support their livelihood. As per 2010 census, 44 lakh of families are engaged in hand weaving.
A shuttle-pit loom which are made of ropes, poles and wooden beams are always used in making of handloom sarees. The shuttle is then thrown from one side to the other side by the weaver, To create different motif and patterns, a fly-shuttle loom is used. The fly shuttle loom helped in creating much wider fabric, with increased sleed and required half the labour as compared to the shuttle pit loom.
