The traditional making of a "Namda" :

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 un-dyed - 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. The ready plain Namda is then dry washed by the local women and finally embroidered by hand with the Aari (needle hook), traditionally floral designs are used but also geometric and more modern designs are possible.
