Caption:

The wool thread is first spun with a wheel, and then twisted by hand. Once twisted, the thread is much stronger and can be used to weave carpets.
The Meghwal people are known as the carpet weaver’s caste. They weave exquisite carpets with camel, goat and sheep wool.

Meghwal family, Barjarsar, Rajasthan desert, India.
