Product Description

This hand woven red purple patola silk Ikat scarf is made by ‘Narshibhai Dulera Vankar Community’ of Katariya village in Surendranagar district of Gujarat.
An authentic piece of both art and clothing, this scarf is made from fabric woven from the finest quality silk. Made using authentic Ikat dyeing technique on silk, it supports the livelihood of Vankar community that has been practicing this art through generations.
Under one of its livelihood projects, Saath works with this community and helps them source raw material as well as provides means to create these unique, exuberant Patola silk scarves, stoles, neckties, clutches, saris, other accessories. This helps not only in preserving the traditional skills but also goes a long way in helping this community make a dignified living.
The word 'ikat' (pronounced 'ee-KAHT') comes from the Malaysian word 'mengikat,' or 'to tie'. Ikat is a centuries old dyeing technique, practiced in East Asia and South America. Ikats i.e products made using this technique are typically status symbols because of the skill and time their production required.
