Weaving

Handloom weaving has proved to be the most economically viable occupation in the rural areas, even in a region like Malenadu which does not have any traditional weavers. Charaka employs 150 people in the weaving units in different processes like warping, winding and weaving on the frame looms. there are a total number of 53 looms(2 peddle & 4 peddle) in the units in and around charaka. 14000 meters of fabric is produced every month out of which 6000 meters is produced in and aound charaka. The rest of the weaving is outsourced from other weaver groups and societies.

 

 
   
A wide variety of cotton fabrics in plains, stripes and checks are woven in different counts from 2/20s to 2/80s. Sarees, dupattas and stoles have been some of the new off loom products that have been designed and woven at charaka.
