ANUBHUTI(ASSAM HANDLOOM SAREE)
The woman in me speaks to me at times about how womanhood itself is fluid, an idea that has changed over times and periods. A physicality that tries to encompass standards of beauty, sexuality, and gender roles, yet in doing so, creates so many implications for women all over the world. Cultures fueled by the contradicting norms of beauty, identity and womanhood try to rip each other at the bud, claiming primacy.

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 tree (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.
