The village of Bomokoi in the Chikiti tehsil, near the Andhra border lends its name to the bomokoi sari. It is not a coastal village; yet the sea is very close. The Vaishanava Chikiti ruler patronised, along with theatrical dance and stilt opera, the Bomokoi sari. The bomokoi represents one of the few non-ikat weaving traditions of Odisha.
