HOW IS GHONGADI MADE?
Our artisans weave traditional black ghongadi on traditional pit looms. Extremely fine quality wool is used in the process. The yarn is measured according to its exact length and attached to the loom. While the black yarn is attached to the center of the loom, yarns of yellow and red color are attached at the ends of the borders. It is pre-treated with tamarind paste to give it strength and durability. It takes approximately 4-5 days to weave ghongadi entirely. After the weaving process, post-treatment is done to increase its shelf life. Ghongadi made by these artisans are further verified by the quality officers and then delivered to the customers.
