Handloom Textiles

Handloom industry is the most important source of employment generation in rural areas after agriculture itself.Handloom Textile Weaving includes shawl making, yarn spinning, Khadi weaving and related tasks. Weaving is an act of passing threads or strands of material under and over each other.
Handloom weaving in India is still largely a household enterprise, as well as being predominantly a rural activity (with the exception of Maharashtra), providing employment to the largest number of people next only to agriculture.
