7,500
"The name Bomkai originates from a village in Ganjam district of Odisha and weaves from this part area prized possession in all Odia households. The light weight cotton weave is perfect for regular wear and the silk ones, with their shine and shimmer, are worn for special occasions. In fact, no Odia marriage is complete without a Bomkai. The traditional belief system of the weavers is depicted in the border of the saree. However, the most alluring part of this weave is its thread work in the designs of border and pallu displaying plants, birds, elephants, temples, flowers, figures and geometric patterns. Tribal simplicity in its purest form – Bomkai weaves were originally produced with low count cotton yarn dyed in intense colour giving a coarse and heavy look to the finished product. "
