History

Solapur is known for its textile industry. Once it had Asia’s largest spinning mills. The development of the handloom weaving industry in Solapur seems to have commenced during the regime of the Peshwas

There were numerous small independent artisan weavers in the industry. Each artisan-house had one or two looms which were generally handled by the head of the family.

The family was the unit of work and the women and the children helped the weaver in preparatory processes and in some cases in dyeing also.

The rise of the modern factory in India in the 1970s altered the organisation of the local hand-loom weaving industry.
