PATOLA TALES

by Shatika, January 5, 2016

Patola sarees have evolved from the days of the sultanate reign confined to Gujarat, acclaiming stature: as one of the finest piece of art . Gujarat is believed to have exported Patola sarees to South-East Asia since the fourteenth century. The later development and expansion of Patola weaving is also traced in the historical evidences. This depicts that after the fall of Solanki dynasty, the wealthy Gujarati merchants patronized the Salvis. Gradually the Patola sarees became a status symbol with Gujarati women and it became an essential part of their closet. Patola sarees is treasured by women in India and all over the world. It is very difficult to get hold of an original Patola saree as they are woven by a handful of weavers.

Patola sarees are gorgeous and are worn on formal occasions. Apart from its appeal, many women like to wear this saree to satisfy their status and position in society. Double Ikat type of Patola saree made in Patan is very difficult to produce. The procedure involves great care and skill.
