Handloom refers to a wooden frame of different types which are used by skilled artisans to weave fabrics usually from natural fibres like Cotton, Silk, Wool, Jute etc. Its a cottage industry where the entire family is involved in the production of cloth, right from spinning the yarn, colouring, to weaving on the loom. The tools required for this entire process are made from wood, sometimes bamboo and they do not require any electricity to run them. The entire process of fabric production was totally manual in earlier times, thus this is the most eco-friendly way of producing clothes.
