India has a rich and ancient heritage in fine textiles. (Double Ikat) Patola from the area of patan in the north Gujarat region of western India glorifies this heritage with its unique gem like qualities gorgeous colors, designing and durability. Its very appearance lures the connoisseur of fine textiles. It has no reverse side. Both the sides have equal intensity of color and design. This peculiar quality has its origins in a very intricate and difficult technique of the dyeing or Knot dyeing known as “Bandhani Process” on the warp & weft separately before weaving. Historically , the art of double ikat patola weaving dates back to centuries. Painting in Ajanta caves, resemble the tie-dye technique of patola. Legend indicates that sometimes in the 12th century A.D. king kumarpal of solanki dynasty invited 700 families of patola weavers from jalna (south Maharashtra) to settle down in patan in north Gujarat. And this is how we get patolas .
