A place referred to in the holy Bhagavad Gita, as one of the villages given to the Pandavas, a place where historical epic battles have been fought during Mughal times, Panipat, the district town of Haryana, is today known as the city of the Weaver and flourishing from a prosperous textile industry.
Panipat being close to Delhi, and famous for its quality blankets and carpets thanks to migrants from across the border who settled here and propagated their craft, is also home to many industries and small businesses, including a prosperous handloom weaving industry. It is home to good quality art silks that are specific to the place and therefore known as Panipat Silks.
With the rising cost of silk and the limited availability of natural silk, man-made or artificial silks such as Nylon, Rayon, Chiffon, Georgette, Crepe Silk, Polyester and others have become popular. Art silks are a good substitute for the naturally reared silk, closest in imitability of the endearing properties of smoothness, softness, lustre, strength etc, and have a very widespread existence today. Art silks can be handloom woven or produced by power looms, the difference lying only in the method of weaving the cloth. Handloom art silks are woven like any other handloom fabric yarn, the advantage being, the close properties of the natural silk are maintained while the cost being much cheaper to it comparatively. Prints of all sorts come out very well on Art silks. Additionally handlooms are adorned separately and this follows for the art silks as well.
