These exquisite and intricate fabrics are made by hand with a special wooden tool requiring exceptional skill and labor by the artisan weavers. It can take around a month to make a piece of fabric 3 meters (about 10 feet) long, and the total processing time can be about 3 months, depending on the color details and pattern or motif of the fabric.
