India : Patan Patola Heritage — the genuine producer of Patola , January 15th, 2015

Patan Patola Heritage, the multiple awards winning company located in Patan, Gujarat, specializes in creating exceptional outfits from the centuries-old textile Patola, an exquisite handmade silk fabric manufactured in Patan in North Gujarat.

Owing to the remarkable designing skills of the firm’s weavers and a sound 2000 square feet workshop with traditional patan patola loom that facilitate precision weaving, the maker is considered as one of the prime manufacturers and suppliers of Patola sarees, stoles and scarves in the country.

“Owing to our state-of-the-art workshop, we are able to maintain production capacity of 15 pieces per month, thus, we are capable enough to complete undertaken projects,” said the owner Mr. Kanubhai M. Salvi, while talking to fibre2fashion.

Inspired by Indian culture, nature and prevailing fashion trends, the Patola Sarees, which are fit to be worn to marriages and other social gatherings, are decorated with Geometric & traditional designs, folk motifs and flaming colours.

“Our each saree reflects imagination and craftsmanship of experienced weavers,” explains Mr. Salvi while describing about the pure silk crafted Patola sarees woven in his facility.

“Our valued clients can avail from us stylish yet traditional Patola Stoles. Our Patola Stoles are smooth and easy to carry. With these designer Patola Stoles, any outfit can be accessorized. These Patola Stoles are available in a variety of colors and designs,” he adds.

Talking about a wide collection of Patola Scarves, he says “Our Patola Scarves embody the latest fashion trends along with the traditional style, making them ideal to those women who want to carry tradition with style. Patola Scarves can be teamed up with skirts, tops and kurtis.”

The company is a proud recipient of the UNESCO Seal of Excellence for Handcrafted products in Patolas, and has received the National Award recognition from former President Shankar Dayal Sharma, as well as the Heritage Award by the 11th Indian President APJ Abdul Kalam.

Considered as an art form, the Patola designs are first drawn on papers to achieve accuracy in tie and knots, and then transferred to looms, with great care and cautiousness. A craftsman can weave only five to six inches within a day. It takes one year to complete a Patola saree.

The seven main processes of preparing a Patan Patola include the conversion of raw silk in to pure silk, making warp and weft, tying the knots on warp and weft, dyeing, weaving, adjusting each thread of warp and weft, followed by the finishing of the fabrics. (PB)
