Patola WeavingBy Expert Author: menaka poonam
Patan is in Gujarat, India. It is home to the world-famous Patola Saree and other Patola creations. Patola work is a traditional method of dyeing and weaving of fabrics involving careful calculations and precise execution. The double-ikat or horizontal resist dyeing that is employed ensures that the pre-determined patterns result in the threads being coloured.
The Patola originated in the times of the Solanki Rajputs when the Salvi community weavers sought patronage of these rulers. The royal family accustomed to finery had several hundred weavers in Patan, the kingdom’s capital, to weave exquisite silk creations, out of which the Patola Silk came into existence. Art once reserved for the creation of apparel for the royal families of Gujarat and later for high ranked noblemen, the Patola weave is an exquisite display of colour in unique complex patterns.
The Salvi community in Gujarat, which is the mainstay in the propagation of this art incorporates certain preferences of design and motifs in the weaves, based on the wishes of their customers. Some are said to prefer motifs of parrots, elephants, floral designs etc., while others prefer floral and geometrical designs and use the sarees for weddings. Dark coloured borders and body with the design of a bird on it, known as Nari Kunj is the preference of a certain section of people. Even today tradition has it that the Patola Saree is ‘Stree Dhan’ i.e. the Patola Saree made especially for women during their marriage is their own property.
The Rajkot Pure Silk Saree of ikkat patola weave with a broad zari border and designer pallu is a stunning marvel, exquisite and magnificent. It serves very well for Indian weddings and bridal occasions. The elegantly hand-crafted Banarasi Supernet Patola Saree having zardozi brocades and embellished with kundans and beads is an awesome eye-catcher. Of Stunning appeal, it would be nice to wear to college parties, corporate conferences and festive occasions. The Pure Handloom Gujarat Cotton Saris in Patola weave is very colorful and apt for daily casual, corporate office, college and traditional events.
