A collector's item, this orange Patan patola double Ikat elephant in Chhabdi bhat saree has red floral motifs framing white and red kunjar (elephant) motifs. The red phulwadi (floral) border and pallu in vibrant colours are a visual treat. The complexity and intricacy involved in weaving a Patan patola saree involves 4 to 5 weavers working on it over 8 to 9 months. The weavers not only require dexterity, but also numerical ability and spatial intelligence - skills that are passed on from generation to generation in the very few families that have been practicing this historic skill for centuries! This beauty does not come with a blouse.
