JUNGLE TREASURES(HANDLOOM SAREE)
Dark rainclouds gathering on the horizon to a slow beat of thunder; mellow sunrays piercing through chinks in the cloud cover; raindrops beginning to fall one by one on the sun-parched shades of emerald lush green grasslands of Kaziranga and in between the shining canopy of the low lying trees, the resplendent peacocks dance. A sight like would make one wonder, if this is truly God’s paradise. Yet not only does this occur each monsoon in between the forest landscapes, it is etched deeply in folksongs, literature, music and woven in the traditional motifs.
This monsoon, wear one of the Kaziranga stories, sing one of our bihu ballads!

Handloom cotton rich 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. 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.
Weaves of Assam represents the rich diversity of flora and fauna, this land is blessed with. Rhino, deer are such representation of nature used by weavers while bringing their imagination into reality.
