Handloom Cotton Bedsheets, Curtains and Cushion Covers Made by a Weaver from Baghpat, Uttar Pradesh
Handloom Cotton Weaving Skills
Cotton weaving is my ancestral work. My parents were also weavers of cotton cloth. I started learning weaving from my father at a very young age and gradually I mastered it.
Handloom Cotton Weaving Process
I buy cotton yarn from local and nearby markets. Then I dye them according to the colors required. Then the yarns are dried. After that, I start weaving the yarns into the fabric using the loom.
My products are completely handwoven.
Cotton fabric products like bedsheets, cushion covers, and curtains are very useful items and the fact that these are cotton handloom products makes them superior to machine-made items. These products are durable and retain coolness.
I have expertise in weaving stripes designs on fabrics.
I have 25 years of experience in weaving handloom cotton.
Participation in Exhibitions
I have participated in Surajkund International Crafts Mela in Faridabad and an exhibition organized at North Central Zone Cultural Centre, Prayagraj.
In the future, I would like more people to join me and learn the art of cotton-weaving so that they too can make a good living and become self-reliant.
