Sand dunes and the road
Studying different kinds of philosophies came naturally to her. It was as if the foundation for her studies had been laid from a time that she now did not know. As she delved deeper into it, she realised that everything pointed to the same thing. In the beautiful desert of creation, she saw that only the manifestations were different but the core of everything was similar. Whether it was the silky smooth dunes, the adrenaline inducing mini-valleys or the roads of tyre tracks, it was all basically just golden sand!

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.
