Patan Patola Embroidery – Gujarat

Patola sarees are the traditional hand-woven sarees which belong to the State of Gujarat. These embroidered sarees are extremely popular for their laudable designs and patterns. Apart from the alluring embroidery, the element which makes these sarees look divine is the fabric from which they are made of i.e. A special type of silk called Patotal.

Mostly done on old Cotton White sarees, the beauty of these lies in their border which is made from different color threads of old sarees.
