Behind every original hand-woven saree or dupatta or yardage are hours of hard work of the weavers who weave them into designer and heirloom pieces. But the back-end of a weaver’s story is all about hard labor. The more intricate the pattern, the more lifts are needed, and the weavers often experience fatigue and strain. Siva Kumar Modha of Modha Technologies in Balanagar has a solution to address this issue.


The jacquard attachment is used by the weavers that enable the looms to produce intricate designs. They face problems while working with jacquard handlooms due to the heavyweight of the jacquard box that houses the entire loom mechanism.


The weavers lift this manually using their legs and a wooden lever, and the entire set-up weighs about 40 kg. The more intricate the pattern, the more lifts are needed, and the weavers often experience fatigue and strain.


Siva has come up with a solution; an attachment that works with all looms and can also be used for pit looms. Modha says the machine can lift or pull both molds and jacquards simultaneously in a single weave and plain weave. It can also be used to lift two jacquards separately or simultaneously. The addition makes it easy to weave, says Modha.


For now, the machine is priced at Rs 16,000, and the technology has been patented. Modha says while reducing stress will also reduce the need for manual labor significantly. Modha Technologies is supported by Palle Srujana, a voluntary organization that documents knowledge and innovations across rural areas. The innovations are promoted, and support for validation, value addition, patenting, re-engineering, manufacturability, marketability, and business incubation is provided.


Modha is now prepping to give demos to weavers and weaver clusters. He also has a team of technicians to address technical glitches, and he gives one year warranty for the machine.
