For this week’s challenge (although a bit late), I have chosen a ‘sari’. An Indian woman can never have enough of them. Here I show the famous ‘Patola Saree’ from Patan, a town in Gujarat. Patola is the name of silk sarees unique to Patan.
The history says that, king Kumarpal (12th century) brought 700 Patola weaver families from Maharashtra to Patan. Today, only the Salvi family continues the craft. A sari takes about 6 months or more to be woven into the masterpieces that they are.
P.S. This picture was taken by my daughter during her school trip to Patan.
