    This fabric is used for weaving twill on looms and many methods are produced through interlocking and complementary weft imaging. In the bending process, different types of warp strips with complementary colors are included on both sides of the loom, and then the interlocking technique is used to achieve the pure color. The spool contains a weft thread of the same color as the separate strip, applied to weave restricted sections of the strip.

    "Pattu is traditionally used by the Meghwals and other pastoral communities, who trade in wool and other agricultural and dairy products than in the past for pattu; as these serve well in cold weather as well as on cold nights and are used as wool scarves, shawls, headscarves and blankets In addition to their functional value, they are also an important part of rituals and their traditional rituals. Pattus is an integral part of the gifts given to the groom and his relatives during the wedding ceremony.
