The Sambalpuri  saree  is made from fabric woven on a hand loom and is popular throughout India. Varieties of the Sambhalpuri saree include Sonepuri, Pasapali, Bomkai, Barpali, and Bapta sarees, which are in high demand. Most of them have been named after their places of origin and are popularly known as Pata. Paintings on Tussar saris depicting Mathura Vijay, Raslila and Ayodhya Vijay owe their origin to ‘Raghurajpur patta paintings’.  Shatika is synonymous with the rich weaving heritage of India.  Odisha,  the exotic state in Eastern India is also famous for sambalpuri sari, as for other number of hand-woven weaves. Today  Shatika – is not only known for its varied weaves but it is a stamp of authenticity and high quality. It is the best on-line saree experience.


Sambalpuri Saree is a traditional handwoven ikat  silk saree . It is produced in the Balangir district of Odisha.  The saree is a traditional garment worn by the ladies since time immemorial.


Sambalpuri sarees are known for their incorporation of traditional motifs like shanka(shell), chakra (wheel), phula (flower), all of which have deep symbolism, but the highpoint of these sarees is the traditional craftsmanship of the ‘Bandhakala’, the tie and dye art reflected in their intricate weaves, also known as Sambhalpuri “ikat”. In this technique, the threads are first tie-dyed and later woven into a fabric, with the entire process taking many weeks. These handwoven sarees first became popular outside the state when the late Prime Minister of India, Indira Gandhi,  started wearing them,  In the 1980s and 1990s. The Handwoven Silk cotton sarees, became popular across India. Today Odisha , is on the map for filigree work, sun temple and  handwoven sarees.
