Draped in elegance, she gave one last check on the mirror. The half-length mirror was no good to give her the entire picture though. She turned around deciding to leave it to the kind hands of fate to make her look good on stage. But she did not have to do this for long. Because, the minute he entered the room and looked at her, she knew she was ok. Probably more than ok, considering his jaw almost touched the ground!

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 handweaving 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.
