What would the world have been before the first flower ever bloomed? Probably the time before that could be categorised as one moment of Mother Nature holding her breath for the most beautiful yet most delicate of her creations to bloom. And then, when the flowers finally bloomed, imagine the magic in the air and the heavenly beauty that would have engulfed the landscape. What would the world be without a flower? Well, it would probably still be holding its breath for that first flower to bloom!

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.
