The dusty lane of a little-known street in Kolkata was where she first found them. The ‘Pyaara’ did not take much of time to become her favourite thing in the world after that. It became a staple for her to take a walk with dad every evening to buy the juicy fruit as often as she could. That moment of holding her dad’s hand with one hand and keeping the fruit near her nose with the other while taking a huge sniff was what consolidated the experience of childhood for her. And then, when she bit into it, the excitement of finding out what colour the fruit was inside was a thrill that she couldn’t match with anything else!
This lovely handloom saree in green and pink is a pastel dream come true. Do not miss this one!

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.
