Excerpt:She remembered the nights when her dad took her to their backyard and taught her about stars under the night sky. The million sparkling lights had lit up her face each time and her dad had told her that he lived to look at that face. “Come on dad”, she said as she mockingly pushed him away to not make the moment too emotional. Today, as they were miles apart, she looked at the sky and continued the last argument they had in their backyard. “It is not black, it is blue-black”, she muttered under her breath. This artistic piece of beauty in dark blue and black is a saree that is not to be missed. Get draped in the prettiness and shine on!
"The handloom cotton is a type of fabric that is woven using hand operated looms. Two sets of interlacing yarns, the warp (length) and weft (width), are woven on a mechanised loom operated by weavers. These looms do not use electricity. Human handling lends the fabrics a unique feel and renders the fabrics more value. The resultant fabric is softer, more durable and much more comfortable than machine-made fabrics. Handloom cotton is more breathable and thus feels lighter in summers and provides more insulation in winters. The dyeing process also becomes easier for handloom cotton as the colour penetration is substantially more. Hues are absorbed better thus look resplendent on handloom cotton.
The art of hand weaving is labour intensive and takes a longer time. But, the beauty it adds to the fabric is priceless. Choosing handloom cotton supports the rich weaving heritage of India and lets the weavers carry on the precious art-form to the future generations as well"
