Art Silk Manufacturing Process

Sari is regarded as one of the most valuable garments over the ages being loved and adored by women all over India as well as globe to enhance their feminine charm and beauty.Art silk manufacturing process is a critical process involving multiple steps. Attention to detail and precision at each of these steps is a key to successful result.


The main element of development is the weaving of saree. Weaving comprises of two components, warp and weft. Warp is the longitudinal yarn setup on the beam of the loom for weaving. Different qualities and denier of warp are used depending upon the final quality of the fabric. To give strength to the yarn, certain twist is given in the yarn. The warp yarn is given an appropriate TPM (Twists per Meter). The greige warp yarns are sourced to initialize the next process of color dyeing. The required color to warp is achieved after a lot of trial and errors so as to avoid future wastage of yarns or the end product. The dyed yarns are then taken up for coning. Coning is a process of preparing a cone of yarn that releases yarn uniformly in the next operations like on a warping creel. It is then followed by the process of warping, where thread on spools is passed to other spools. Sufficient moisture conditions and a temperature favourable to maintaining these conditions are controlled according to the specifications of each material being processed. With these operations, warp is set and ready to use on the loom.

Alongside development of warp, weft also undergoes the similar process. Weft is available in multiple deniers as per the requirements of the product. The color dyeing of weft is however much more complex than warp dyeing. More than 10 warp shades and a library of 70-80 wefts shades has been developed over time by our organisation. Every dyed yarn is tried as sample fabrics. The dyed weft yarns are then taken up for coning. The weft is now ready to initialise weaving process.

A rapier weaving machine is a shuttle less weaving loom that carries the weft yarn through the shed of the warp by finger-like carriers to the other side of the loom. Setting up of a rapier jacquard is a huge process and attention to detail is the key requirement. The woven fabric is considered a raw saree and undergoes a long post weaving process of shearing, border cutting and quality check. Shearing process eliminates all the extra wefts from the saree to process it further under the border cut machine. The border cut provides a finished edge by removing the unnecessary and raw edge of the saree. Adherence to set criteria in post process of saree is mandatory as the final look of product depends upon this stage. Frequent inspections help in maintaining the equilibrium of quality control. The processed saree undergoes heating and other finishing processes. It is then packaged as per the delivery requirements. The packaging unit coordinates with the further authorities to attend to the dispatch needs of the company. We ensure timely and safe dispatch of all our products.
