TIVONA(HANDLOOM ASSAM COTTON SAREE)
Her tryst was with the moon, as if she was a lover of the moon, when there was nothing left. She held the moon as she held her own heart, as if it was the only light that could guide her through the darkest nights. Like Juliet, she stood on the balcony, beckoning the new moon to look at her, and guide the moonlight into the darkest corner of the heart, unbeknownst to everyone, like young couples coyly finding their ways into the park, just to hush a sweet nothingness in each other's ears.

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.
One of the most prevalent motifs in weaves of Assam, the diversity in pattern depends on the skill of the weaver.
