(2- Mins Read) - Patachitra Silk Collection from Priyadarshini Handloom
If you are reading this, chances are you are fascinated by the look and feel of Patachitra Silk Sari but are not sure what really makes them the way they are. Right of the top, let us clear this, All patachitra saris are hand-painted art over handwoven saris; they are not block printed. This ensures the paint is fabric grade and stand the test of a dry wash. 'Pata-Chitra' is the formation of two words 'pata' means fabric/sari, and 'Chitra' means painting/art. This form of art is practised majorly in the districts of Puri, and the expressions are a result of inspired story-telling by the artist. When you own a Patachitra Silk sari, you buy a pure silk handwoven sari on which the handpaint has been crafted. Each of them constitutes of a body, a pallu or Anchal and the border. The paintwork is limited and restricted to only a few artist communities. We do have many interesting collections that we suggest you explore, but before you do, look at the vibrant collection of Patachitra Silk Sari. Enjoy!
