JUR PAAKHI(HANDLOOM COTTON SAREE)
She wrote to herself! She said she was her best friend and she wanted to know how she expressed her love to herself. So she picked up a pen one day and with the same love and fondness you’d write to a dear friend, she wrote a letter to herself. She wrote about how some things in her life kept her happy and moving forward, and the most important people in your life, who brought her so much joy, kindness and inspiration, so much to be thankful of. Yet, in all the melodramas of life, one tends to forget the one living within your own skin, the one who shares your happiness and your sorrows, your beauty and your ugliness and the one who gives you a pep talk in the mirror, if you need one. She then popped that letter in the post and knew no bounds of happiness when she received it, a few days later.

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 fabric is dyed using tye and dye technique with colour extracted from Lac, Haritaki.
