  1. Khesh Cotton Sarees

Khesh Cotton is woven mostly with a new set of warps that are either cotton or a silk-cotton blend. Thread insertions are made from recycled cotton sarees. The artists take old cotton sarees from various sources and cut them using a process that they have developed, yielding many strips from a single saree. These cloth strips are then woven into a fresh set of warps to create the fabric known as khesh. There are two varieties of sarees: one that is entirely woven and is plain khesh, and the other that has the design patched because it is incredibly difficult to produce that design by weaving. It is one of the toughest to create in Indian Handloom sarees and hence has its legacy on it.
