Patola of Rajkot, Gujarat


A less meticulous and more affordable counterpart to the traditional Patan Patola, Rajkoti Patola is characterized by its cheaper raw materials and single ikat weave. In the single ikat technique, weavers first tie and dye the warp according to the planned design and then entwine the prepared threads with a plain weft producing vibrant geometric motifs in the finished weave. Rajkoti Patola is produced in Surendranagar and Rajkot.
