While the history of weaving in Nepal dates back to the second century AD, this particular style is fairly new, originating in 1958 in Tansen, Palpa. The Dhaka industry is led by women weavers who start their business with just a small amount of capital to support their family. The Palpali Dhaka is woven on a mixture of treadle wood or bamboo handlooms and some automated machines.
