About Us

Flagship store started in the year 1983 ( same location under the name of Al Humaidi & Co). Ours was the first Saree shop in UAE to cater to the Asian expat community. Subsequently the Brand changed to Handloom House in the Year 1990 to address & promote the Handloom sector of India, which was in decline due to the automation in Textile Industry. Since then we have endeavored to stick to our mission of promoting handloom products, especially the techniques that were being obsolete. We strive to source directly from weavers and craftsmen through the length and breadth of India, whilst curating a collection that will never fail to delight our loyal clientele. Because of the loyalty of our customers, we’ve never had to advertise or offer any Promotions other than the Annual Sales. Another reason is that we’ve stuck to our core of maintaining honest pricing policies. We established this brand identity to engage with our clients who believe in our goal/mission, our story and help us in achieving them.Read More

What is handloom?

Handloom is an age-old traditional technique and custom from time immemorial and ensuring that this heritage continues to thrive and become a part of our life.

history of handloom

A Handloom is a loom powered manually rather than by industrial means. Basically, all looms are frames that hold the warp threads, those that run vertically for the length of the intended fabric, in tension. The warp threads are then interlaced with weft threads at a right angle, thus forming a weave, In Indian weaving vocabulary, you sometimes see the warp threads called the tana and the weft threads called the bana.( Sourced: https://study.com/academy/lesson/indian-weaving-history-patterns.html)

Handloom sarees are a traditional textile art of India. The production of handloom sarees are important for economic development in rural India. Completion of a single saree can take from 15 days to a month and sometimes upto 6 months to complete, depending on the intricacy of its designs and patterns. Some of the well known Indian Handloom Sarees are Kanchepuram Silks Sarees, Maheshwari Saree, Bagh Print Saree, Chanderi Silk Sarees, Tussar silk saree, Banarsi Silks Saree, Baluchuri Sarees, Sambhalpuri Sarees, Kantha stitch Sarees, Bandhini Sarees and Munga Sarees. Handloom Sarees are made of good quality silks to give it a lustrous look. (Sourced: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Handloom_saree )(Sourced: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banarasi_saree )
