Hyderabad-based SaileshSinghania Design House is working with 700 weavers across 22 handloom clusters across India that include Pranpur, Cholapur, Pochampally, Srikakulam, Gadwal, Upadda and Kota, according to fashion designer and owner SaileshSinghania, who said it takes anywhere from three months to a year for a hand-woven saree to get off the loom.

An increase in usage of natural yarns, handloom fabrics and sustainable and eco-friendly fabrics will help revive the handloom industry, Singhania.
