Pataras are used by all over Gujarat — particularly in Saurashtra — for keeping mattresses, quilts and valuables. There is also tradition of giving a patara to the daughter at the time of her wedding. Bangle boxes and jewellery boxes are decorated with geometrical and floral designs, enclosed in brass and aluminium sheets. The embossed designs include elephants, lions, horses, peacocks, parrots, and creepers.
