Abstract: Handloom is a traditional technology to produce specialty fabrics as well as ordinary fabrics in the rural and semi-urban areas scattered throughout India. In the present context, though the share of handloom industry has been drastically fallen due to advancement in power driven large scale sectors, this is one of the major decentralised small scale industry till today. West Bengal is traditionally rich in both cotton handloom and jute yarn making by its technology and availability. During weaving of jute and jute blended yarn in cotton handloom, the weavers have faced a lot of difficulties mainly due to coarseness and roughness of jute fibre. In the paper, some modifications in the traditional frame type cotton handloom have been discussed so that jute and jute blended yarns can be woven successfully for decorative, upholstery, furnishing and even for outer part of the apparel.
