Sambalpuri Textiles

Warp Threads: The warp or vertical threads in the loom which crisscross with the weft threads to form the Swan and Lotus motif

Sambalpuri textiles are one of reasons the state of Odisha is known all over the world. It is cotton fabric primarily known for its unique production technique—Ikat or Ikkat i.e., 'tie and dye technique'—which is locally known as Bandha Kalaa. Though it is known by the name of Sambalpur district there are also weavers' communities in the rural areas of Bargrah, Jharsuguda, Sundargarh, Bolangir, Boudh and Sonepur districts of western Odisha who are involved in the production of this beautiful textile and have helped to keep alive the tradition for generations.
