ALAYA(ASSAM HANDLOOM SAREE)

Scorching heat, sky high humidity; all are problems that did not bother, for all she cared was - her sister was back home for one and a half months. All for her.

Handloom cotton fabric is woven using hand operated looms. The warp (length) and weft (width) are two sets of interlacing yarns woven by weavers on a mechanised loom that do not use electricity. Loom fabric as a result becomes soft, durable and provides more comfort in comparison to machine-made fabric. Loom fabric that is woven with love by someone, definitely gives you a unique feel and
Handloom cotton is more breathable and therefore, feels lighter in summers and provides more insulation in winters. Also, colour penetration in handloom cotton is more, thus making it more easier fabric for dyeing. Due to better absorbance of colour, handloom cotton looks more splendid than machine-made. Most importantly, human handling lends the fabrics a unique feel and gives the fabrics greater value.
A labour intensive skill, the art of handweaving takes 20-25 days for a saree to be handwoven. Supporting handloom fabric supports our ancient heritage of rich weaving and encourages the weavers to continue practicing this precious art-form.
The motif of a phool(gach) is a common pattern found in handcrafted products of Assam. However, the shape is often represented in a geometrical manner and the shape and design varies based on the expertise of the weaver.
