Himroo fabric is considered to be popular amongst tourists and the royalty. Himroo is made of both silk and cotton. The base of the fabric is usually woven with mostly cotton as it is available in abundance in the deccan region. The entire deccan region is dotted with cotton fields which makes it easier for Himroo craftsmen to produce high quality shawls, sarees and stoles. The tradition of weaving the Himroo fabric by hand has still been kept alive by the Qureshi family that has owned this business since the early 1900's. Other products that are produced in the Himroo factory besides shawls, stoles and sareees are bed sheets, pillow cases, curtains, ties and other linens.
Himroo is one of the oldest weaving traditions still alive. Himroo uses the same technique as the craftsmen from the past, with a few innovations that were introduced by master craftsman Abdul Hameed Qureshi who revolutionized the Himroo industry in 1960's-70's.We produce genuine Himroo at our weaving factory located in Aurangabad. In 2012, the Maharashtra Government awarded the Aurangabad Himroo factory and the Qureshi family for excellence in textiles, at the hands of the then chief minister Prithviraj Chauhan, on the occasion of 50 years of industrialization in Aurangabad.
