She, like most of us forgot faces easily, yet remembered the colour, smells, and tastes of the places with the greatest economy of language. And monsoons rains hitting the panes of her window, seemed to combine her ecstatic energy with an eerie calm of acceptance, almost as if, her time had come of age. She would be a silent observer of herself, seeing a mirror of her emotions in her natural world. She used to say, the clouds above would always protect her and deliver her messages to her soulmates, within or across frontiers.

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 fabric is overdyed dyed with colour extracted from Haritaki.
