Contributed By: ,Nayeem


Hand loom is one of the traditional ways to weave fabrics from the very beginning of industrial development. The fabrics made by these looms are unique for its quality and outlook. In the village area of Bangladesh once it was a common tradition to own a loom in every house. As a result of Industrial and machinery development day by day that old tradition of hand loom is on the way to extinction.

Whatsoever, in different areas of Bangladesh, still this hand loom industry survives. The village Jugia (জুগিয়া) of Kushtia is one of the renowned areas for its hand loom industry. It’s worth paying a visit while exploring the birth place of Great Philosopher Lalon Shah. A traveler can experience the whole process of making Lungi (লুঙ্গি) and Gamcha (গামছা) while visiting this village.

Hand loom is really a hard working job. Both woman and man work simultaneously in this village and for this job they are not paid equivalently. They just got slapped from the mechanical industries. That’s why now a days the number of people who are working with hand looms are shrinking day by day.
