Caption:

The wool thread is first spun with a wheel, and then twisted by hand. Once twisted, the thread is much stronger and can be used to weave carpets.
The Meghwal people are known as the carpet weaver's caste. They are among some of the poorest people in India. They live in small villages scattered throughout the Rajasthan desert.
