Traditional weaving skills to the fore in the Orissa Handloom Silk sarees

Orissa handloom silks are traditional handloom fabrics made from mulberry silk and Tussar silk through the fine use of ikat and supplementary thread work. The exclusive Bomkai Saris employ the ikat style of tie-dye, where the threads are dyed with contrasting colours before they are woven with a special ‘extra weft’ technique. This traditional art uses vegetable dyes to a large extent, with a leaning toward artificial colours in present day creations. Black, yellow, orange, maroon, are the preferred hues. Motif patterns commonly adorning the fabric are bitter gourd, the atasi flower, the kanti-phul or small flower, peacocks and birds, Konark temple, conches. The use of bright coloured panels with extra motifs on a contrasting colour background is a unique and attractive feature.

The Sambalpuri Silk sarees are akin to the Bomkai sarees though they make more use of geometrical patterns. Shanka, chakra, or floral pattern motifs may also be seen on the base fabric, with designer colours and patterns chosen to provide the traditionally woven saree, the modern look. Orissa Handloom Silks make use of tribal art hand painting which significantly enhances the appeal of the already splendid-looking saree. Initially worn only during rites and religious functions, these fine silk saris are used for a variety of occasions.
