RANG SHARBAT (HANDLOOM SAREE)
I smile. Memories are all I have now. Memories that have her in them, a few sit on the top of the tiny cupboard beside my bed. Her photos that made her look like a queen that day, a majestic queen. So much so that her poses on my cameras showed sides of what I had conjured of seeing, but really I’d never gotten close to seeing them, until then. I wonder if that’s what a connection is, after all, a first meeting of two strangers on shaadi could never turn out to be a rollercoaster, until you hold her hands while she enjoys the glorious taste of candy floss at the amusement park. And the one where she laughed when a woman accidentally spilled her drink on her saree, she gleefully laughed and called her saree, rang sharbat.

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.
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.
