What we have been doing

Empowering Women Artisans and Preserving Handloom Tradition

About Us

A Loom, A Person, A Story

Grasslooms is not just a boutique; it’s a platform for change. We believe in empowering women artisans and preserving the rich handloom tradition of Assam. Our mission is to train and equip these talented weavers with new and efficient techniques, enabling them to produce world-class products at affordable prices. By giving them 245 days of work annually, we ensure handloom becomes a sustainable livelihood for them, aligning with developed handloom states.

At Grasslooms, we go beyond being a market platform. We establish deep ties with top online retailers and foster structured networks of artisan groups to cater to bulk institutional orders. We prioritise standard quality control and high productivity yield, ensuring our products meet global standards. We also build weaver-based institutions and facilitate artisans in accessing government aids and programs in the handloom sector. As an implementing agency, we bridge the gap between artisans and these programs.

Our objectives are clear: identify skilled weavers, upgrade their skills through training, develop products that meet global market demands, maintain strict quality control, and introduce new patterns and designs. We strive to enhance the weavers’ quality of life by adding value to their weaves, making them eligible for better export markets and higher prices.

To achieve our goals, we follow a well-defined modus operandi. We identify villages with skilled weavers and organise them into homogeneous clusters for seamless operations. We assess their loom types and skill sets, categorising them accordingly. Extensive market research and collaboration with designers and buyers help us develop a diverse product portfolio, encompassing fabrics, garments, furnishings, and accessories to cater to different buyer segments.

The process of making Handloom

Step 1

Harvesting Silk Cocoons:

Silkworm cocoons are collected from mulberry trees.

Step 2

Extracting Silk Thread from Cocoons:

Silk threads are unwound from the cocoons using a spinning wheel.

Step 3

Preparing and Twisting the Silk Yarn:

The silk threads are twisted together to create a strong and uniform yarn.

Step 4

Dyeing the Silk Yarn: The silk yarn is dyed using natural or synthetic dyes to add colour.

Step 5

Warping the Loom and Attaching Heddles:

The warp threads are measured, wound, and attached to the loom with heddles.

Step 6

Weaving the Base Fabric:

The weaver interlaces the weft threads through the warp threads to form the base fabric.

Step 7

Adding Extra Weft Designs:

Additional weft threads are inserted to create intricate patterns or designs.

Step 8

Finishing and Inspection Process:

The handloom fabric is inspected for quality and undergoes finishing processes like washing and pressing.

Grasslooms serve as a bridge,

linking weavers with government aids and projects to foster holistic community development.

By supporting Grasslooms, you not only embrace the exquisite artistry of Assam’s handloom products but also contribute to the empowerment and sustainable growth of women artisans.
