We visited this place on our boat tour around the lake. It was mesmerizing! A bunch of different looms with 2-6 foot pedals on each machine. Each worker had their own pattern to make (they made the pattern by moving their feet on different pedals) and the foot pedals changed the threads. The people moved around the shuttles. The sounds were rhythmic, the colors extraordinary. The people sat on skinny hard wooden benches and worked tirelessly. They made longhis (which look like long skirts for men- but are not feminine at all.) They also made saris for women- and purses, shirts, etc.
