Ikat/Patola Sari Weaving of Ahmedabad, Gujarat

IMAGE GALLERY KEYWORDS YOUR VIEWS

Patola design originates from the town of Patan, Gujarat which utilises double-ikat pattern to create beautiful textile pieces. They traditionally resist-dyed with natural dyes and then woven. The Salvi family of Patan is the only one that continues to practice this craft in Patan. This skill has been handed down to them over several generations. Making a Patola sari is a complex process and the weaving process is painstaking. The designs have been mastered over the years. Single ikat Patola saris are less intricate and are mainly produced in Surendranagar and Rajkot.
