CRAFTS OF INDIA / PATACHITRA / UNNATI SILKS
The Patachitra of Odisha has a special place in the Unnati range of valued handloom fabrics. There are splendid Kerala cotton sarees with white or light fields with sparsely distributed motifs but enchanting Krishna Leela and other such related themes on a prominently eye-catching pallu or end piece.The typical wide golden zari border adds to the allure. Hand woven hand embroidered Kanchipuram silk, Bangalore silk or Jute Ghicha Tussar silk sarees with rich zari adornment on the pallu, patch borders, kundan work, sometimes with embroidery and / or appliqué work make them a very delightful range of sarees to explore.
In all these Patachitra fabrics it is the pallu or end piece with the hand painted imagery of mostly religious and mythological themes, that steals the show and is the eye-catcher that decides the choice.
