Begum Handwoven Shirt
This fabric is woven completely by hand, and no electronic machines were harmed in the process :)
Weaving is the interlacing of threads perpendicular to each other. The vertical thread is called the warp or tana and the horizontal thread is called the weft or bana. Plain weaves start with 2 sets of thread, and complicated weaves can have as many as 400 sets of threads!
