Weaving is one of the most important process through which we get out third basic need ‘cloth’. In the weaving process two distinct sets of yarns or threads are interlaced at right angles to form a fabric or cloth. And later the cloths are used in different ways. As from these cloths different men and woman garments are produced.
The longitudinal threads used in weaving process are called the warp and the lateral threads are the weft or filling. By these two threads very beautiful cloths are produced. To add design or to make the cloth more attractive weavers use different colour threads and by using their skills they produces very attractive and unique designs on it.
Basically cloths are woven on a loom. Loom is a device that holds the warp threads in place while filling threads are woven through them. Some other methods of producing cloth are including tablet weaving, back-strap, or other techniques without looms.
