The Elegance of Handloom Tissue: A Weave of Tradition and Luxury

In the world of textiles, few fabrics evoke the same sense of opulence, tradition, and intricate craftsmanship as hand woven tissue. This exquisite fabric, interwoven with shimmering zari (a fine metallic thread, historically made of gold or silver), has a rich history, represents a precious tradition, and embodies the very essence of luxury. At Laado & Ladoo, we’ve chosen to use this fabric in our premium pieces, offering your little ones a chance to experience its unparalleled beauty from a young age. Let’s delve into the world of handloom tissue and discover why it’s so special.

A Fabric with a Timeless Legacy

Handloom tissue is not just a fabric; it’s a living testament to the artistry and dedication of weavers who have passed down their skills through generations. Its origins can be traced back to ancient India, where the delicate art of weaving silk tissue was perfected over centuries.

The fabric is created by weaving fine threads and zari together, resulting in a gossamer-like material that is incredibly lightweight, yet durable. What makes it truly extraordinary is the incorporation if shimmering zari threads that add a touch of regal elegance to its delicate sheen. This sheen is akin to the shimmering surface of a calm lake. Traditionally, tissue fabrics were favored for royal attire, cherished for their ability to capture the grandeur and grace of royalty.

The Status of Tissue Weaving Today

While the tradition of tissue weaving continues, it faces challenges in the modern era. The demand for fast fashion often overshadows the painstaking work of weavers. Many skilled artisans have abandoned their generational trade due to dwindling appreciation for their artistry.

At Laado & Ladoo, we are committed to preserving this ancient craft. We work closely with skilled weavers to promote handloom fabrics, ensuring that the legacy of tissue weaving endures. When you choose our garments, you’re not just dressing your child in luxury; you’re supporting a tradition that deserves recognition and respect.

The Time and Artistry Behind Each Weave

Crafting handloom tissue is a laborious process that requires immense skill and patience. Weavers meticulously thread each strand onto a handloom, painstakingly weaving the fabric meter by meter. It’s a process that can take weeks or even months to complete, depending on the intricacy of the design.

What makes Laado & Ladoo's handloom tissue pieces even more special is that each meter takes our dedicated weavers approximately 13 hours to weave. This remarkable dedication to perfection is woven into every inch of the fabric.
