The weaving in Kerala has an incredible history of its own. The amazing thing about the saree is that it is woven by weavers who settled in Kerala from Karnataka about 500 years ago. Distinctively the saree is known to be the Kerala saree but it is Devangas who are the professional weavers who make pure cotton sarees and other apparel. Over the centuries, Devangas moved from Karnataka and are now concentrated in Kerala.
The foundation of the weave is the paw yarn which is a long continuous length of interlocked fibers worthy for use in the production of 10-15 Sarees or Dhothies. It is tightly wrapped very carefully into the roll of a timber wood without overlapping other threads. Then with the use of spinning wheel pure cotton wool is rolled around the pendulum. The roll that is obtained is known as the Weft which is usually a white color cotton thread, or a golden color silk thread and sometimes the desired color thread suitable to the design of the clothing. The Weft is drawn through and inserted over-and-under the warp. The yarn is arranged on two different stakes with the help of the nails and when the two pillars move downward and upward, half of the poles of the pouch are cut to half and up to half. After that we insert the weft with the shuttle, so like this, each saree is made. The nails will be trapped only by two pillars to weave the usual dress like dhoties. The number of pillars depending on the variety of the design. However, most designs range from 2 to 6 pillars. This is how the Onapudava and other handloom products are woven.
