Tweed of Ranikhet, Uttarakhand

Tweed of Ranikhet, Uttarakhand

In an old re-purposed church building with high ceilings and stained glass windows, a community centre, Kumaon Regimental Center's Community Centre, is run by a welfare organization for army widows. One half is a factory where you can see workers at hand-looms producing shawls and tweed, while the other half is a modern shop selling the finished products, along with candles, condiments and shoes. Great quality Australian Merino wool and hours spent on handloom weaving produce one Dharchuli Shawl with ethnic patterns and many other products like Tweed coats etc.
