- The development of the handloom weaving industry in Solapur seems to have commenced during the regime of the Peshwas. The Vidarbha region provides the best cotton that is used extensively in the making of Solapuri weaves.
- There were numerous small independent artisan weavers in the industry. Each artisan-house had one or two looms which were generally handled by the head of the family.
- The family was the unit of work and the women and the children helped the weaver in preparatory processes and in some cases in dyeing also. Solapur Chadhars and cotton weaves were the first product to have Geographical Index (GI) status in the state of Maharashtra
