Solapuri Wall Hanging
Solapur is known for its textile industry. The craft of Solapuri Wall Hanging originated about 40 years ago. The development of the handloom weaving industry in Solapur seems to have commenced during the regime of the Peshwas. There were numerous small independent artisan weavers in the industry. Each artisan-house had one or two looms which were generally handled by the head of the family while the women and the children helped in the preparatory processes and in some cases in dyeing also.
