Gamcha Fabric - West Bengal
In the state of Bengal, Gamcha is a daily use fabric. It is now becoming more and more well known due to the rising awareness about sustainable fashion. Gamcha is an extremely practical fabric as it absorbs water well, and dries quickly too. Being extremely light and airy, this fabric is widely used in the Northern States to make lungis and saris.
In Bengal, this fabric is offered to guests to use, and even gifted to new brides and grooms. It is a symbol for offering respect and importance.
Karuna Tara stands for real women, who aren’t perfect but are extremely beautiful with all their imperfections.
Happy Handloom Day!
