Weaving – Creativity of Past still holding the tradition
With the advent of technology, manufacturing has undergone a sea change. However, there are some techniques from the past that are still used to produce premium fabrics. Weaving is one such method that has been a part of the textile industry since time immemorial. One can trace its origin in the Upper Paleolithic period. In fact, it forms a part of “human revolution”, especially in India. It is the reflection of our culture and tradition.
Technically, there are three types of weaves – plain, twill and satin. The process of weaving involves placing of two yarns together. The lengthwise yarn is known as warp while the crosswise yarn is called weft or filling. These days fancy weaves are quite popular, such as leno, pile, Jacquard, and dobby.
Earlier, in our country weaving was carried out in handlooms. Even today the handlooms of India are quite famous. Despite saying that, with the passing of time more complicated looms have been introduced in the country like power looms, special looms.
We at Amartex, believe that it is our responsibility to carry forward our beautiful legacy of weaving. This is one of the reasons, why we have tried amalgamating the conventional weaving with the latest techniques.
