For a decade, I have been to a zillion of my friends’ weddings, danced with glee and been extremely happy that a lifetime of companionship lies ahead for them. And their lives set themselves into a conventional pattern of being spouses to parents with material acquisitions in between. And more often than not, that process meanders itself around the banks of moderation, carefulness and calculated risks. Yet the process of marriage while I am ageing at 40 and single does not cross my itinerant course of wandering off to the hills, on every weekend in the last two years, watching OTTs with impunity or caring about the dishes or cleaning out the house or taking out the trash. Being forever single taught me an important lesson - Love not only as a better half, love to complete yourself.

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.
Phool motif: The phool design in the saree is a contemporary pattern of flower (phool) motifs.
