Pochampally Handloom Co-operative

The manufacturing history of Pochampally Ikat sarees dates back to 1970. It has been said that at that time, some village headmen of Pochampally decided to weave silk along with cotton to make a better living. Two young weavers were sent to learn the secrets of the art to Bangalore. This was the beginning of a revolutionary era in the Pochampally handloom industry.
