(2- Mins Read) - Odisha Handwoven Nuapatna Cotton Silk Saris Collection from Priyadarshini Handloom
This read will help you understand why Nuapatna, locally referred to as Cuttacki/Katki Silk and in Odisha, is specifically called Khandua. Right enough with the terminology. Let's see what makes them unique and if you are new here, pay attention. Every Sari has 3 distinct parts in handloom (ikat): Body, Pallu or Anchal and the Border.
In Nuapatna Silk or Khandua, the designs are inspired by artists drawing inspiration from Lord Jagannath in Puri, Odisha. You can notice the motifs shaped in the form of Shell (Shank), and the borders consist of illustrations of temple shaped triangles. The weave is a light silk weave that uses the age-old technique of 'bandha' and is lightweight compared to temporary silks, and this makes it ideal amongst our working women who love the grace of the sari but not the hassle of wearing it. The body is decorated with small motifs complementing the sari borders and pallu.
Apart from us boring you with the design and its history, let me tell you what you can expect from this collection. Ready? First, all sari is in the range of 4,000 - 8,000 INR, which makes them very suitable for a wardrobe change collection or looking to gift somebody.
