Nakshabandi (pattern-drawing) and Weaving in Varanasi

In conversation with master nakshaband Naseem Ahmad, Varanasi

In Varanasi, before the advent of jacquard looms, weaving was done on jala looms. A ‘jala’ is a kind of frame on which the design is first created using threads by nakshabands (pattern-makers). This is attached to the loom as a master harness. Some master weavers still use the jala loom in Varanasi.
