THE STORY
Jaypore presents a collection of rare original weaves that Odisha was once famous for, which are now fighting for survival. Featuring cotton and silk Bomkai sarees in traditional motifs and cotton Dhalapathar sarees, this collection is a reflection of the quest being undertaken by Vriksh to revive and popularize some of these rare and dying weaves of Odisha.

The Bomkai is woven on a basic pitloom and the weavers have inherited their colour and design sense from their ancestors who, like the most modern of designers, were inspired by their immediate environment.

Today, only three weavers are left in the village of Bomkai who still weave their beautiful thick cottons with extra weft designs inspired from their environment depicting bitter gourds, peacocks, parrots, trees, flowers, fishes in glowing colour.

The Dhalapathar textile is extremely rare, sensuous and comfortable to wear with traditional motifs of fish, butterflies and lotus flowers adorning the pallu.
