BLOOMING JOBA(HANDLOOM COTTON SAREES)
The Brahmaputra (also called Luit) or the son of Brahma, is the only river in India to have a male name and this identity brings in a complicated association to the monsoon - a damsel waiting along by Luit or fragile rivering feelings held delicately yet firmly by the calm deep waters of Brahmaputra. More often than not, Luit in popular culture is used gender neutrally.

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.
