weaving - an initiative to empower 300
local artisans in 7 villages in Raipur Rani area of Panchkula District,
The journey begins with the careful selection of raw materials. The cotton, wool and chenille yarn is carefully sourced by Viraasat production team mainly from Panipat , Haryana and Samana, Punjab. These are of high quality, known for their durability.
Each dhurrie is meticulously crafted, with the artisan skillfully interlacing the colored yarns to bring the design to life. The rhythmic clanking of the loom fills the air as the dhurrie takes shape, imbuing it with a sense of artistry and craftsmanship. Punja Dhurries and Chindi Dhurries are a few styles produced here.
At the heart of this craft are the talented artisans who dedicate their lives to preserving this age-old tradition. The number of weavers is dwindling rapidly as power looms have taken over this industry, killing the ancestry and authenticity of an age old craft. Now there are very few weavers practicing this heritage craft. The upcoming generations of these artisans are choosing not to continue this ancestral gift due to slow paced financial growth in it.
