    Here are some of the frequently asked questions:

    1. What is the history behind Tangaliya handwoven crafts?

    Tangaliya is an ancient and unique textile weaving from Gujarat that is over 700 years old. It is an old craft from Sundarnagar, Gujarat, the homeplace of many traditional Indian crafts and textiles. However, it is said that only the Dangsia community in Gujarat are blessed with the knowledge and skilled expertise of the traditional weaving technique for making Tangaliya. 

    Legends tell the story of Tangaliya as an art born from the creativity of a couple in the village of Gujarat from where they were expelled as they belonged to different communities. Their creativity created a unique wrapping yarn technique to effect raised dots in the shapes and patterns of motifs. This garment for scarves or skirts is worn in Gujarat villages and is worn at weddings by the Bharvad women near Sundarnagar.

    The growing globalisation and industrialisation endanger this weaving tradition, but India still has a stronghold on this age-old technique of textile handweaving of Gujarat. 

    2. Why is Tangaliya handwoven so famous?

    The craft of making this unique wear is well-loved in villages of Gujarat and is ancient in tradition. However, this art form was almost on the verge of extinction in this era of industrialisation and globalisation. Still, many organisations worked together to save this traditional form of handweaving and promote them. 

    Tangaliya is famous because of its unique art form and is one of the finest crafts in India. This handwoven textile and clothing are now internationally available at the best, most trusted, authentic Indian online store, iTokri.
