Weaving Process: Weaving process is initiated after warping. Each thread from warp is attached to the loom threads which are left intentionally from the old warp. Generally, women take care of knotting process. Once knotting is done, the warp is ready for weaving. The weave is formed by interlacing the warp and the weft. The warp threads are processed with fly-shuttle with a cotton spindle loaded in it. The fly-shuttle travels from one end to another end, thus the weave formed by beating the wooden frame which is in front of the weaver. The formed weave is wounded to a wooden beam. The length of unwoven warp is left purposely at the starting of weaving and completion of one Lungi weaving. On completion of weaving the Lungiis folded traditionally and kept ready for marketing.
