"Mangalgiri is known for its traditional Mangalgiri Handloom which ensures durability of the colours used in their yarns. They are usually in cotton or cotton and silk mix or mercerised cotton. The count used in the weaving gives the softness and hardness of the fabric. There are some designs used exclusively in Mangalgiri fabrics known as Nizam Designs. The looms used are mostly pit looms and the art of skilled weaving is passed by way of practice and tradition."
