The process of making these durries is passed down from generation to generation from the mother to the daughter in law of the family. The basic step to make these durries is to use a set of threads that runs through the length of the durries and is covered by the weft. Then to detail the work a stick is used to wrap them which then is shifted to the loom and then weaving is done, to give the durries different colours the weft is dyed with dyes of various colours mixed with water.
