We visited a silk factory and shop where a weaver was making an elaborate fabric design on a large loom. These are the silk threads he used. **There is a short video of him weaving but I am not sure (as I write this) if we can post it.
Inside the shop, these are the (vast) shelves of fabrics.
When buyers come to the shop, the salesman sits on a covered platform like a stage and displays the fabric to seated customers in front of the stage. These shops also measure you and sew any kind of garment you wish for a very low fee. Ned had 2 pairs of pants and two Kurtas made for him once he selected the fabric. The garments were delivered to the hotel the next day!
