A child to her son and a mother to her mother, she lived life like she wanted to. When there are no rules then love takes over she believed. It sure did because her son said there was no mother so loving and her mother said there was no daughter as compassionate. This dreamy drape of grey with the subtle stripes of pink is as good as it gets! The enticing elegance of this sari goes up a notch with the cotton fabric that feels like a breeze of fresh air in summer.

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.
