DODDA(ASSAM HANDLOOM SAREE)
And so, I didn’t become a lawyer in Delhi. Of dreams that I chased, of live courtrooms, bustling with people in robes, speaking in sentences, that made sense at times and appeared to sound Englishy at others. That day, when I saw her photos on his phone, I didn’t feel any remorse, regret, anger, or disappointment, I simply picked up all my paltry savings and left for Senegal on a working visa to teach English. The next few months were under the sun and sleeping on floor mats under the stars, and in the sultriness with the 12-year-old Aimee who spoke to you of her life and her dreams, was when I learnt to let go of mine, they were never mine in the first place.

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 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.
