Weaving

A master of his trade

The man in the video makes weaving look effortless as he threads cotton at high speed.

He has been weaving his whole life. He learned the skill from his father, who taught him all the designs. He doesn’t keep any on paper – all are stored away in his head.

The woven strips are sewn together and made into clothes for special occasions and festivals. Take a look at the amazing striped and colourful patterns of the finished result.
