otu In Vedic literature denotes the ‘woof’ in weaving, and corresponds to Tantu, ‘ the warp,’ the roots vā,‘ to weave/ and tan? ‘ to stretch,’ from which these two terms are derived, being used in parallel senses. In the process of weaving a shuttle (Tasara) was used. The ‘ weaver ’ is termed vāya and the ‘ loom ’ veman. A wooden peg (Mayūkha) was used to stretch the web on, while lead was employed as a weight to extend it. The work of weaving was probably the special care of women. A metaphor in the Atharvaveda personifies Night and Day as two sisters weaving the web of the year, the nights serving as warp, the days as woof.
