Her favourite singer was Frank Sinatra and she used to guard her gramophone records with her life. Her bespectacled face never lost that charming smile that still shines bright in those old snapshots of time in photo albums, especially that one portrait in a red saree. Today, as I noticed my first grey hair in the mirror, I lowered my eyes and saw the same glint of a smile in my eyes too! Maybe growing old is not too bad. It makes you become more and more like the people you love, after all!

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.
