Chitti or my aunt as I called her lovingly is that immensely lovable character of my story, my second mother. While Ma was domineering on my siblings and I, both of us adored Chitti including Ma, who used to always be pleased by plain and simple Chitti. Simple in attire, Chitti always used to set our souls on fire. One fine day, Chitti planned a solo trip to Riga and despite not having formal English education, she did end up going there, all by herself. In my growing years, Chitti, in her own small ways, did teach us the importance of self-confidence and of liberty. Chitti is now 80, yet her enthusiasm and her smile resemble a 22-year-old.

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.
