Bomkai Saree is a handloom saree from Odisha. This is also known as Sonepur saree. Sonepur is in the western part of Odisha. The Bomkai saree has originated from a small picturesque village called Bomkai in Ganjam district, 156 Km from State Capital Bhubaneswar in Odisha. Latter on it is introduced in Sonepur.
Bomkai saree has contrast border and pallu with beautifully woven intricate threadwork. This can be explained as an extra weft technique. In an extra weft structure one weft yarn is used to weave a ground cloth and an additional weft is inserted at intervals to create a decorative pattern on the surface on the cloth.
Motifs are inspired by the nature, tribal lifestyle. The saree gives a aristocrat look for it's fabric, texture and smoothness. The border in most of the Bomkai pattern saree with diamond form gives the saree a prominent and distinctive look.
The motifs on the Bomkai are inspired from nature and tribal art, giving the saree a fascinating look that makes it perfect for aristocracy. Bomkai sarees are available in cotton and silk fabrics.
