Threading, spinning, and weaving are the three traditional methods used in production. Females typically assist in unwinding the thread around the cocoons with their other hand while reeling the tussar threads while holding the 'natai' in their right hand.

  • Day 5  

    The weaver continuously winds the yarns on the wooden "natai" while twisting the filament. Handwork is required for embellishments, either with additional weft or warp and a "bandha" pattern in hand. The fabric's value is raised by the embellishments. Reeling machines are a different option. Traditionally, a spinning wheel is used to wind thread around the chadaki to fill the bobbins (nali) for the weft (charakha). The wooden or Gandhi charakha has been replaced with a metal component. By interlocking shuttles to create foda kumbha in the weft direction, or "cut shuttle technique," fabric is woven. The main shuttle, which forms the main body of the fabric, interlocks with shuttles on both sides.

  • Day 6  

    Visit a Bantu textile village after breakfast, where the weavers only produce the regional wrappers and napkins. Continue with Pipili, which is renowned for its applique work. The word "applique" is derived from the verb appliquer, which means "to put on." This technique has two variations: applique, in which a fabric shape is stitched over a base layer; and reverse appliqué, in which two layers of fabric are laid out, a shape is cut from the top layer, revealing the lower layer, and the two layers are then stitched together. The tradition of Lord Jagannath during the 12th century is where pipili appliqué work got its start. [3] The Gajapatis had previously made applique canopies and umbrellas for Jagannath's yearly Ratha Jatra.These days, it is more frequently used in household, decorative, and holiday products. The base cloth is made of cotton, threads, velvet for tents, and water-resistant material for umbrellas. The artwork incorporates both natural and mythical figures, such as peacocks, ducks, parrots, trees, elephants, creepers, flowers like jasmine and lotus, the Sun, the Half-Moon, and Rahu (a mythical demon who once who swallowed up the sun). Stitching and embroidering are used in the craft. The makers use straight stitch, satin stitch, blind stitch, or buttonhole stitch to join the cloth pieces together. They occasionally also create mirror work and a lot of decorative stitches. The first workshop detail will be revealed to us. After that, return to Bhubaneswar and spend the night there.
