STORY:

For most women, the struggle is to be consistently ambivalent by balancing a collective familial identity with individual ambition. And most women end up relinquishing their professional persona to embrace the role of a primary care-giver in the family. And therefore, for Subali, in contrast to her ‘family-oriented’ husband’s ‘right choice’ of being fully committed to his work, her ‘wrong choice’ in not fully committing herself to his family identity had kept her in a constant assesment of strangling her aspirations. Yet, the narrative of Subali’s resolution to balance her personal and professional, indicates her resolve to fight for something larger, a narrative which has found recognition across the world over, as a testament to the working women in every office.

This beautiful handwoven cotton organic dyed saree is a testament to the 'never give up' persona in you!

DESCRIPTION:

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.

Dye description:

The yarn is dyed with colour extracted from haritaki, hibiscus, onion, aparajita, marigold, indigo and turmeric
