The weaver of
the Punjab is looked upon with great love and admiration
because he is the textile factory of his region.
The cloth he weaves, the hand woven Khaddar is rough
but for the villagers most loved and desires.
The spinning wheel or charkha is a device used
for the spinning of thread and the Khadi is upon
what the cloth is woven. This is not the only cloth,
soft Muslim too we get which is user for Kurtad
and turbaned of the men. The brown Khadar of the
Shahiwal region is very rare and beautiful. The
art of the charkha is most developed in Lahore,
Multan, Jhang, Sargpdja, Quasar, and Jhelum a splendor
and grace all their own. Khes or large rough bed
sheets are one most useful product.
The weaver uses his bold, rustic and natural talent
to express his mood in his weaving a mood most resplendent
and obvious. Darries, carpets, rugs in bold and
carious impressions are a gay and impressive product
of the weaver art. The lacha or the Punjab sarong
too the weaver creates. The bell adorned in this
most voluptuous dress is an image of beauty.
The lacha for the lady and the Lungi the slightly
less decorative garment bold in design though not
in color is what is woven for the men. The malmal
Khaddar a cloth of finer quality is woven too for
Kurtas and other lighter garments.
