    Dastar silk fabrics are woven on looms with whips. While weaving on the whip loom, the weaver sits in the middle of the sitting board. When the weaver is seated, he must be in a position where he can immediately reach out and pick up the bobbins previously wound with the weft threads. One of the weft bobbins is attached to the shuttle. The tip of the weft is pulled out of the hole of the shuttle bead and entangled in one of the warp threads from the edge. Warp tension is provided by turning the warp beam on which the warp threads passed to the fabric beam (sermin) on the front part and on which the woven fabric is wrapped in rolls are wrapped.
