The ancient and the purest form of textile weaving is still preserved - in the bylanes of the Indian subcontinent. A handloom saree is a handwoven garment using the traditional shuttle pit loom; made of wooden poles and ropes. The complex working of the loom is a skill passed down from generations. The conjunction of vertical and horizontal threads called warp and weft is woven to create a handloom saree. The loom holds the warp threads tightly, allowing the fly shuttle to move while weaving the weft threads. Often Handlooms are mistaken for pure cotton sarees. However, they are; woven in both silk and cotton. A handloom goes through a lot of processing, even before it; is attached to the loom. The threads are either handspun or machine-spun, and then they are dyed. They are; then arranged for sizing and warping. Then the warp and the weft; are mounted onto the loom for weaving. The design language and the artistic creativity of the weaver; are portrayed on every weave. Each handloom has its signature design and weaving process. A mastery passed down from generations of skilful artistry of handloom weaving. Each handloom is inspired by the natural resources available in that region with artistic inspiration; from the regional culture and architecture. Due to meticulous hand weaving, there may be a few discrepancies in the weave. These flaws are considered a mark of authenticity rather than an error. Due to the invention of powerloom, there is steep competition for handlooms. The power looms reduce labor and achieve a smoother finish to the weave. However, they lack the sheen of a handloom. There is an increasing need to bring awareness to the quality of purely handcrafted handloom sarees. We, at Mavuri, aim to promote and work directly with weavers dealing in pure handlooms, which are sustainable and use minimal electricity, leaving a smaller carbon footprint.

Handloom silk sarees are one of the most arduous sarees to be woven. A single saree can take anywhere from three days to a year for weaving, depending on the design and type of saree woven. Some of the most complex weaves are Patan Patola, Jamdani, Kanjeevaram. They require utmost care and dexterity in planning, designing, preparing yarn, dyeing and weaving. These complex weaves; are revered as a must-have in every Indian bride's wedding trousseau. Weaving a Patan Patola saree is a complex and time-intensive process, making them all the more precious. Weaving a patola saree takes up to six months to a year, depending on the design. The weaving involves mathematical precision, along with an eye for a vivid imagination, fortitude, and patience. Crafted with precision; The Patan Patola sarees are the; ultimate manifestation of weaving perfection because the displacement of even one thread could result in a deformed pattern. Jamdani is a handwoven fabric and is also known as muslin. The word roughly translates to Flower Vase(where Jam means flowers and Dani means vase). This style of weaving; is predominantly practiced in Bangladesh. Weaving a Jamdani takes up to one month to a year. They are; woven in muted or vibrant colors. It is a time-consuming and labor-intensive process to weave a jamdani. The motifs are created separately and directly on the loom using a discontinuous weft weaving technique. The Queen of silks- Kanjeevaram Silk Sarees is rooted in the looms of Kanchipuram, a temple town in Tamil Nadu. Handwoven with pure mulberry silk and zari, the saris; are distinguished by their wide contrast borders and heavy weaves. Traditionally the contrasting borders are woven separately in the same loom; the weft of the border is attached; to the weft of the body using a complex technique called Korvai. Two weavers are required to weave this saree. One works on the body, while the other works on the border. Each Korvai Kanjeevaram needs three shuttles, two for the border and one for the body.
