This is a Patola dupatta. The exquisite silken weave of the Patola textile is just not an art form but a heritage by all means. It is often called as “Queen of Silks”. Worn by royals and aristocrats on auspicious occasions and prized as a holy cloth even in South East Asia, the Patola finds mention in the 14th century travel accounts of Ibn Batuta, who gifted Patolas to kings. Since a genuine Patola is a very expensive, it is a matter of great pride to own one. The painstaking traditional process of spinning, tying-dyeing and weaving takes four or more people four to eight months to weave a piece. Patolas are also known for their bright striking colour combination, which remains intact for centuries as all colours are sourced organically. Although floral motifs, animals, birds and human figures are basic designs, but geometric patterns are in vogue. The scintillating Patola dupatta at Luxurion World are authentic and so beautifully designed that it inspires awe for both the makers and the wearer. You were born to sparkle dear girl, and we at Luxurion World are happy to pave the way to it!
