Are you tired of shelling out a small fortune on sarees that only see the light of day once or twice? Do you want an option that’s budget-friendly yet still looks gorgeous and stands out from the crowd? Look no further than the Pittala Saree, also known as Padmanabhpur Suta Luga.
These sarees are not your run-of-the-mill fabrics. They’re meticulously hand-woven using traditional wooden looms, which lends them an exquisite and artistic look. Their elaborate patterns and stunning color combinations make them truly one-of-a-kind. However, be warned: they are often mistaken for the simpler sarees from Jagatsinghpur suta luga that the locals wear as everyday attire.
But don’t be deceived by their unassuming appearance! The Pittala Cotton Sarees hail from the quaint villages of Padmanabhapur in the Ganjam district of Odisha, where they’re woven with love and care. They’re made from 80 count cotton and are single cotton, not mercerized, which gives them a delightful softness and makes them perfect for daily wear. The single Ikat (tie and dye) in anchal and border are made by Nuapatna weavers, which are then purchased by Padmanabhapur villages’ weavers to weave these sarees.
These sarees are characterized by their straightforward Ikat patterns at the border and pallu, with charming butis peppered throughout the body. They’re the ultimate low-maintenance textile that will win you over with their simple beauty. It’s worth noting that these sarees don’t come with a blouse piece, but don’t fret – just pair them with a cotton Ikat fabric blouse piece, and voila!
It’s not uncommon to find many sellers marketing these stunning sarees as Nuapatna or Jagatsinghpur suta luga, but let’s not be too quick to blame them. After all, their main goal is to sell their products. However, at Sanskriticuttack, we don’t just sell sarees – we also promote handlooms by providing proper information. This way, as a buyer, you’ll know exactly what you’re purchasing and be able to make an informed decision.
The Pittala Saree is not just budget-friendly; it also supports the handloom industry in Odisha. We implore handloom aficionados to purchase these sarees in larger numbers to support the local weavers and help keep this craft alive.
So, the next time you’re on the hunt for a saree that won’t burn a hole in your wallet, give the Pittala Saree a chance. It’s a classic example of hand weaving, and it’ll make you feel unique and stunning without costing an arm and a leg. Plus, you’ll be doing your bit to support the art form and the weavers who bring it to life.
