Sunrise and sunset
Excerpt:Amalgamations keep things going. One thing becomes another and the other thing merges with something else. What would the world be if nothing ever got mixed up? How would it be if it was day-time all the time? What if nights never ended? Thank god for transformations and the beautiful in-betweens. For the times of sunrise and sunset, when all the colours dance in the sky together, is infinitely more beautiful than just day or night. Come alive like the twilight sky with this incredible cotton saree in off-white, blue, orange and red shades!
"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"
