Mashroo is woven with a 7 to 12 peddle loom which requires the artisan to skillfully move their hands and legs in harmony. There are eighty threads in a mashroo per inch, which is much higher than in a standard woven textile. It is difficult for a weaver to create a piece which is both big in size and high in thread count, and so Mashroo is only available in a width of 23 inches. The pure silk once used to make Mashroo has been replaced by art silk, rayon and stapple cotton.
