Record Type: concept
patolas (textiles) (textiles (visual works), <visual works by material or technique>, ... Visual and Verbal Communication (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Textiles created by a particular technique and known for intense colors, fineness of weave, and dramatic designs. Patola-making developed in India. They are created through the technique of double ikat, where both the warp and weft threads are tie-dyed with patterns before weaving. When the silk threads are woven together, the dyed sections are aligned to form clear motifs. The process is complex, difficult, and labor intensive; the slightest misalignment of threads leads to indistinct motifs. Examples of usage of patolas include as saris for women and as shoulder cloths for men.
