Raw Material


From more than 100 of years the material used in patola sarees have always been pure silk with vegetable or natural colours , the best part of these dyes is that they create a proper harmony and co-ordination even when contrast colours are used, they are pleasing to the eyes and are eco friendly and hygienic and apart from all these they look more lovely and beautiful as compare to synthetic dyes. There is a famous proverb in gujarati ” padi patola bhat fatey pan fite nahi” meaning ” design on patola will never perish though it may be worn out”.

Some of natural dyes used are haldi, madar roots, manjistha, ratanjyot, indigo, mendhi, katha,kesudo, promogranate skin etc
