Manufacturing process of tapestry wall hangings
Most of the patchwork tapestry wall hangings are made with a common process as mentioned below.

Its the kind of patchwork that matters!

First of all similar kind of patches are collected. Similar kind is like sitaara(sequin work), vintage beadwork, kutch patchwork etc. These patches are taken out from various kinds of vintage or fresh dress material or textiles mainly for the tapestry wall hangings of vintage patches. However for the tapestry wall hangings which are with new work, the work is also done at times specially afresh for the production of these tapestry wall hangings. Different patches with different kinds of work, feature the work of various states, places and communities of India. Like the fulkari work depicts the work of Punjab, Banjara work depicts the work of dessert areas of rajasthan etc. Once the patches are collected. They are pasted together on a canvas sort of material called 'bukram'. The patches are pasted securely and tidily adjuscent to each other with the help of a home made glue. After that they are allowed to dry, preferably in direct sunlight. Once the tapestry wall hangings are dry enough they are then passed on to the process of hand weaving where a bundle of thread called 'dori' is hand stiched along the joints of the patches. This dori moves along the adjuscent edges of the patches moving all across the tapestry wall hangings giving every tapestry wall hanging a different unique look. The dori moves all across the tapestry giving random patterns in every tapestry. However some fixed type of patterns can also be given where the patches are put accordingly. In one of our tapestry wall hangings style from Uma Arts #FW77, the lace which is stiched to the tapestry wall hangings is made to run accross the tapestry wall hanging to give specific beautiful elaborate figures like elephants, peacocks and other floral designs.
Once the dori is stiched to the patches along the tapestry wall hangings giving it a tidy look, it is prepared for the process of dying. Most of the times the tapestry wall hangings are dyed to give it one color to match with the home decor however at times the tapestry wall hangings are not dyed which give them a multi color patch look with a basic ivory color to match all kinds of home decor. Now if the tapestry wall hangings are dyed, their process is a little different than other normal textile dying processes. This process is followed to safeguard the ethnic vintage precious patches used in these tapestry wall hangings. Under this process, the tapestry wall hangings are spread on the floor and then a dyed color is mixed with a luke warm water generally along with salt and a few other agents to make the color fast somewhat. However there is an attempt to make the color fast but due to this hand process in rural places or small houses, the color fastening guarantee cannot be given. The color is then spread across evenly through the tapestry wall hangings and then allowed to dry. It is very important to get the tapestry wall hangings to dry nicely in this stage as any moisture left in the tapestry will lead to a tapestry with defects and imperfections like fungus, odour and loose hangings at later stages.
After the tapestry wall hangings are completely dry, they are then ironed on the reverse side most of the times and then lined at the back. The linings are generally matching or simply black. Once the tapestry wall hangings are completely ready they are undergone a thorough checking for any loose threads or any patches which are loose. We at Uma Arts get each and every tapestry wall hanging pass through the checking unit to pass single- single piece.

At times the patches are new and the work on them is specially done for the production of tapestry wall hangings say for example in one of the styles #FW105 from Uma Arts, the work is done specially for the tapestries a fresh. Here the borders are hand embroidered with lots of mirrorwork and then inturn the borders are used to contruct the tapestries.

Its in the rural areas of India specially parts of Gujrat and Rajasthan, there are special markets where the patches are sold markets like Rajkot in Gujrat and Pushkar in Rajasthan, these patches are sold in a proper market of theirs. The patches reach to these markets through the dealers called the 'Thekedars' in different villages who are the hub of collecting this material from various homes. They are the ones who carry the demands of the markets to the manufacturing homes. The Thekedars provide the raw material to the poor homes and needy majorly housewives to work at home and provide their hand work on the apparel. Once the embroidered textiles are ready, they are then taken to the 'Mandis' (markets) and then to finishers who customise it further in the final form of tapestry wall hangings for the rest of the world meeting the needs of this modern era.

Our Role
Once the patches are collected We convert them to tapestry wall hangings. At times when they even reach in the form of raw tapestry wall hangings. The experts at Uma Arts do
fine alteration of defects by hand, while safeguarding the precious patches and their work. If necessary apart from the normal process of loose thread cutting, pasting and stiching of loose patches we also dry clean the tapestry wall hangings with great care where necessary. A fresh new cloth lining (cotton or blends) is provided to the tapestry wall hangings and sometimes as per the demands of our clients loops for curtain/ tapestry rods are stiched to the base lining.

Some common types of patchworks for the tapestry wall hangings
As mentioned earliar, there are different types of patches that depict the features of different types of communities or areas of India. Some of the most important ones are Fulkari from the northern regions of India, Punjab; Kutch work patches depict the hand work carried out in the region of kutch which is a region in between Gujrat Rajasthan and Pakisthan; Banjara work is work from the banjara community from Rajasthan, known to roam from one place to another for months without any fixed residence. The patches are new and vintage. The vintage/ antique patches could be as old as 150 years old or even more. The ladies do the hand work at homes. The beadwork and the sequin work patches are though from round India but majorly from the regions of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand. The places also enrich the Indian heritage with the world famous dabka and zardosi works. Thus these patches are then used together to form the various patchwork kind tapestry wall hangings.
