The grandma was an expert in making tangerine candies. Every day, she made a huge, round and resplendent candy that woke the world up; a one-of-a-kind candy that couldn't be eaten but still got counted as the biggest ever treat. It was sweet and warm and radiant and it was the only thing that could bring her children to ward off their slumber. As she slipped it every morning from under the blanket of the ocean, the world came alive as if on a sugar-high. And, when it was time to rest, she put it inside the jar that was between the mountains and got ready to make the next one for tomorrow !

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.
