By Expert Author: menaka poonam

Maheshwar is a small town on the banks of the river Narmada in the Dhar district of Madhya Pradesh. It is around 80 km from Indore, the commercial capital of the state. Maheshwar is an ancient town of pilgrimage with a rich heritage of art and culture. It has been mentioned in epics like the Mahabharata and Matasya Puran by the name Mahishmati. It is said that King Mahishman, who belonged to the Hyhay Dynasty, founded it.

The handloom industry in Maheshwar employs people from various castes and religions, including Kshatriyas, Bharuds, Muslims, Kumhars and Kahars. All these people are either from nearby areas or have migrated to Maheshwar and are now permanent residents.The raw material for Maheshwar handloom, mainly cotton, silk and zari (golden wire), comes from different parts of the country.The warp machine is made of two basic parts. One is a big octagonal cylinder that rotates on its axis (which is very different from other warp machines in the sense that this cylinder is vertical), and the other is a vertical rack on which a number of thread rolls are placed. The rolls pass to the cylinder of the machine through hooks under a constantly moving frame that helps wind the cylinder in a criss‐cross manner.
These looms are the newer ones, with lightweight metal frames that constitute the main body. They were introduced hardly two to three years ago, and given their superior performance, have now been adopted by a large number of weavers.
