Patola Saris

Hand-Woven Sarees of the Highest Possible Quality

   
 

Patola Saris stand out as being among the hand-woven sarees of the finest possible quality on the market today. We are in front of a Patan specialty and an item that was made famous because of the highly delicately woven patterns that are put into the sarees with incredible clarity and precision. Patola saris take around 5 months to make. All depends on the design and how complicated it is. Also, the length of the saree is going to have an impact. Surat is also acclaimed for patola textiles.

Patola fabrics are currently mostly found in Gujarat. History shows us that salvis arrived in Patan around the 12 th century while moving from Karnataka and Maharashtra. This created the Solanki Rajputs patronage, which ruled Gujarats and other areas. Folklore claims that there were 700 Patola weavers that accompanied Raja Kumparapala to Patan Palace. It is also said that when this happened the ruler was wearing Patola silk robes. As soon as the Solanki Dynasty fell we saw Salvis finding patronage in Gujarati merchants. That was when Patola saris become a symbol for both women and girls in Gujarati.

Patan Patola stands out as one of the most complicated textile designs that we can find in the world. All the fabrics are made out of single weft threads and warp threads. All are bind in order to perfectly warp together. Every single warp thread will be dyed and tied according to Patola saris patterns. What is interesting is the fact that his technique is basically creating a saree that looks exactly the same on both sides, making it easy to wear. Traditional handlooms are used for weaving and dyes used are always going to be created out of special natural colors and vegetable extracts. Patola saris will eventually tear but the color always stays the same due to the entire coloring process used. What is interesting is the fact that the designs are highly attractive. All Patola saris are going to be perfectly woven manually and we are faced with a technique that seems like built by a machine. Craftsmen are going to put a lot of effort in each saree and this is why it takes so long to create Patola saris.

There are different Patola saris styles that one can find. Every one of them is based on tradition. There are different patterns that one can find like dancing figures, elephants, parrots and flowers. On the market you are also going to find sarees that feature geometric designs or special floral designs that are to be woven in clothing that is to be worn during weddings.

Patola saris have a strong ethnic flair but there is also an addition of modern elements. The entire market managed to evolve and it is now offering women exactly what they want. With such a long time needed to create Patola saris you can always expect to pay more money. The good news is that all the sarees that you are to buy are of a really high quality.
