“Come on, they must obviously know better”
I hear a voice within me say this, firmly, with conviction. And, I give in. I trust with no rhyme or reason. People call me gullible. I call myself me. I know it hurts, to always assume the best and face the worst. And, I realized, after a thousand heart breaks, that being gullible is not a fair thing to do to myself. This awareness became my first step in embracing who I was. This ‘flaw’ led the way for me to understand myself. And, I love myself enough to work on it, even when I fail most times, This is my story. What is yours?

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.
