The complexity and intricacy involved in weaving a Patan patola saree involves 4 to 5 weavers working on it over at least 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.
