Pure sheepwool , from the mountain area of Kashmir, is collected, cleaned and dyed. Then woolen flakes are spread evenly on a jute mat (minimum 3 layers of dyed and natural - like a sandwich), then sprinkled with soap water. The mat is then rolled tightly , tied up and compressed bx rolling it on the floor with the help of hands and feet for a long time.
