Creating an atmosphere near the LOOM
The warp is set and the fabric is ready to weave
and so is in place is the weaver…ready for a conscious workout!
The cling of the shuttle making musical sooth of a ti..ti…….on its travel from one end to the other end, to insert the weft yarn for making the fabric.
The tapping of the legs to push the peddle up-and-down. Oh!!! The magic of Coordination. Yes now both the hands are also involved… along with both the legs.
The Right hand is drawing the threads to be lifted and the left one to beat the yarns to get closer, while the yarns mindfully overlap and get locked.
Minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour, the fabric weaves itself into an inch-by-inch colourful vibrance.
