DOSTI(ASSAM HANDLOOM SAREE)
We grew up together, with a common hatred for Maths and lack of understanding of Physics. Commonly loathing over our Chemistry tuition and a shared interest of an amazing life post high school; we discussed of ways how our life could be good. Admiring of frequent trips, lots of friends and lots of kisse.We would be the first ones to come to school, take over last benches and discuss plots of HBO series, latest clothing designs and ways to set up our mini mart in Bongaigaon. Later that year we proceeded for our boards and amidst all this hustle-bustle, entrance exams and choosing a college, suddenly came a day when we went from speaking 10 hrs a day to being a contact number.Yet 8 years later, being in the same city, there is relief that my go-to people are still close to me and just a call away.

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 phool(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.
