Charaka weaving unit has different sections such as dyeing, winding, warping, and weaving.
Once the yarn is colored, it is sent to the winding or spinning process. Cotton yarn is spun using spinning wheel to prepare spools and spindles.
Warping is prepared using warping machine. Cotton spools are fixed to the rack of warp machine. The threads from each spool is taken and reeled to the warp beam. Once required length of cotton yarn is reeled on the warp beam, it is taken out and fixed to the loom to start weaving.
Weaving is done on the frame loom. The loom has very basic structure and it contains warp beam, reed, weavers beam and pedal system. The yarn threads of warp passed through the reed and connected to the weaver’s beam. When weaver starts operating loom, the fly- shuttle passes through the warp threads horizontally to process weft. Weaved cloth is wound on weavers beam.
