"Rajasthans incredibly colourful culture has found its expression in its traditional textile industry. From sturdy carpets to soft light weight quilts, the skills of Rajsathani artisans know no bound. Traditional workers of pattu fabric in Rajasthan hail from Meghwal community. With no map to the time of its origin, the craft of Pattu making is that of fine weaving with alluring geometric pattern, woven with finesse by the time honed master craftsmen. The khaddi, as the artisans call it, is a pit loom used by the weavers traditionally to weave Pattu. The weave used is the twill weave and has two kinds of ornamentation mainly. The extra weft used in the process gives the fabric an appearance of embroidery."
