Origin of textiles in India traces back to the Indus valley Civilization where people used homespun cotton for weaving. Rigveda, the earliest of the Veda contains the literary information about textiles and it refers to weaving. Ramayana and Mahabharata, the eminent Indian epics depict the existence of wide variety of fabrics in ancient India. These epics refer both to rich and stylized soft furnishings used by the aristocrats and ordinary simple fabrics, by the common people. The contemporary Indian textile not only reflects the splendid past but also cater to the requirements of the modern times. The rich tradition of soft furnishings in India has been favored by a number of factors. The favorable factors leading to the extensive growth of textile tradition in India are:

- Easy availability of abundant raw materials like cotton, wool, silk, jute and many more
- Widely prevalent social customs
- Variety of distinct local culture
