Between green and sky
How adamantly inquisitive is the human intellect that wants to compress the entire universe into its three dimensional perception? We want to understand water, air, fire, earth and everything else just like how we understand you and me. We want to name everything and say that this is it. We think we have succeeded until we realise that what we call as the distance between the green and the sky is actually the entirety of the universe as seen from a tiny blue marble!
This lovely green, blue and maroon handloom cotton saree is a beautiful piece that should not be missed by saree lovers!

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.
