Patola saree: Gujarat
- Pride of Patan, Gujarat, the Patola sarees are synonymous to regality.
Design Description of Patola Sarees:
These pure silk royal sarees are hand dyed in natural dyes serving to a niche market which makes them quite expensive. The double ikat weave produces a saree with identical sides. Whether its the intensity of the colour, the feel or the aesthetic appeal, all of it is same on both the sides.
The Patola sarees with motifs and designs of parrots, flowers, elephants,, zigzag figures, and the geometric patterns inspired from the large step wells in Gujarat are a wonder to behold. The time of completion of these heart throbbing creative sarees is as long as 5 to 6 months due to the lengthy process of tie dye method including both wrap along with the weft in silk fibres which makes them unbelievably costly.
