She went out to the balcony, a hot cup of tea in hand, to talk to the night sky. It had been a while since she did this. And, the twinkling stars chided her in Morse code. She shook her head, she brought all that was left of her spirit from the long day and replied to the stars. She said sorry with the twinkle of her own smile. Ha! We made you smile, the stars high-fived each other.

The handloom cotton garment that the dress is made of is naturally-dyed using plant-based dyes that are derived from the barks of trees, the leaves, flowers, etc. Natural dyeing is a process that is kind to the planet as there are no chemical dyes involved
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 and much more comfortable than machine-made fabrics. Handloom cotton is more breathable and thus feels lighter in summers and is perfect for layering in winters.
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.
