Bells of ireland
She had found the perfect partner in crime who loved to sneak out at nights as much as early morning sunrises. Just like her, he was a foodie but always found a way to make healthy food that tasted delicious instead of gulping down packaged treats. He loved longs walks as much as a day at the spa. He finished her sentences and pointed to the same destination when wondering where to head next. It was one such destination that sealed the deal for them. When he asked the magical question, she heard Irish bells playing the perfect background score to her reply.

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.
