Was it love at first digital sight? Arisha and her spouse did finally meet to get married this year, delayed by another two years for once the Covid hit, there were lockdowns and travel restrictions in place. Yet they maintained their relationship for 15 long years in the longest possible distance, he was in Alaska and she in Arunachal, they met on Facebook. They say that their time zones allowed them to be each other with each other throughout the 24 hours of the day. To stay connected, they started a daily ritual which has become their salvation – live cooking, she cooks at 6:30 AM when it is 7 PM for him. They spend the next several hours helping each other cook, savouring the meal, watching a movie on the shared screen and catching up. They haven’t missed a single day even since the start of the pandemic.

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.
Phool motif: The phool design in the saree is a contemporary pattern of flower (phool) motifs.
