A powerloom is a mechanised loom powered by a line shaft, and was one of the key developments in the industrialization of weaving during the early Industrial Revolution. Powerlooms are highly opposed earlier as there reduced demand for skilled handweavers, initially causing reduced wages and unemployment. In the longer term, by making cloth more affordable the power loom increased demand and stimulated exports, causing a growth in industrial employment, albeit low-paid.
Powerloomed dress materials in Regular Cottons, Mangalagiri patterns (these are not handlooms, but are imitations of Mangalagiri Pure Handlooms), Printed cottons (with or without embroidery or screen printed) are loom/machine made and are 100% pure cotton. These powerloom cottons are imitations of the known Handloom varieties like Mangalagiri, Cheerala, etc., produced by loom to meet the demands of Handloom at a much lower price.
The dress is a three piece salwar dress material with top 2.25 meters, salwar 2 meters and dupatta 2.5 meters.
