The pieces are ironed, marked and cut into squares. 

These are then sewn together.  The sewing is simple and done by trainees who need to learn to sew in a straight line and get familiar with sewing on an electric machine.

An artisan holds up a finished patchworked piece.  Dyeing it is the next step.

After it is dyed, it is dried.  This piece will undergo a second dyeing process before it is ready to be cut for the final product.
