The design process is to design the motifs that will be in the karawo on paper, then the motifs that have been created are adjusted to the fabric and sliced ??based on the motifs earlier. The following process is the removal of the threads after being cut ??earlier. The fourth process is tying and finally embroidering or Mo Karawo.

The slicing process, or the second process, is the decision process in Karawo because if this process fails, the cloth to be used becomes damaged and fails. So this process must be carried out with caution.
