Scope of Work



Handlooms (called khaddi in urdu) are the traditionally used technique, which is in practice from ancient time as it operates manually, even by the women of rural area but this trend is declining as the handlooms are being replaced with the power looms due to the technological advancement plus the rise in demand.


There was a time when in orange town ( banaras town) each store had a unique display of colours and designs, and entire households were involved in the business with the women working on handloom where as on the other side the men were involved in making and selling the fabric.
