Just visited world famous city Patan, Gujarat famous for 'patola' Sarees. I seen the process of making and fall in love of this craft. the technique used to make patola is called ikat : Ikkat, is a dyeing technique used to pattern textiles that employs a resist dyeing process similar to tie-dye on either the warp or weft fibres.
The purity of silk and the authenticity of hand prints make this printed silk saree a definite standout from the regular machine made sarees. All printed silk sarees online exhibit exclusive hand prints in latest designs. These printed silk sarees are from urban silk cities like Hyderabad, Chennai and Bangalore and they dictate current fashion trends.
