Weaving Department

Hand-weaving is the method of forming a pliable plane of threads by interlacing them rectangularly: the process of passing the weft between taut, alternately raised warps, as in the basic weave, or between other selected warps, and pressing it into place. One of the most ancient of crafts, hand-weaving still survives today because of the innovation that it allows in design. Hand-weaving began in the Ashram in 1940.

Weaving Department is a unit of Sri Aurobindo Udyog Trust.

Originally the products of the Ashram Weaving Department were meant only for Ashramites. Since 1954, the bed-sheets, bed-covers, napkins, towels which are hand-woven here are available for visitors.
