Patola Saree

Patola is a special woven fabric from Gujarat. It is either single or double ikat made form silk.

Ikat (pronounced "ee-kat”) is a loom-woven textile created by a remarkable process. Ikat fabrics have always been known for their distinct style and unparalleled beauty.

The weave is so intricate that each piece is not just the manifestation of a traditional Gujarat craft but a work of art. The fabric is the culmination of a painstaking process which involves dyeing each thread in different colors to make the characteristic designs. A characteristic of Ikat textiles is an apparent "unevenness” in the weave.
