Special Design

Pattachitra style of painting is one of the oldest and most popular art forms of Odisha. The tradition is more than thousand years old. The name Pattachitra has evolved from the Sanskrit words patta, meaning canvas, and chitra, meaning picture. Pattachitra is thus literally a painting done on canvas, and is manifested by rich colourful application, creative motifs and designs, mostly mythological in depiction. 

Weaving Technique

Odisha Ikat is a kind of Ikat, a resist dyeing technique, originating from Indian state of Odisha. Also known as 'Bandha of Odisha'. Bandha can be defined as "A length of systematically arranged yarn, dyed according to a preconceived design in such a manner so as to enable a weaver to portray the design when the yarn is converted to a fabric through the process of weaving". A notable feature in this Ikat is that it depicts the same colourful design motif on both its front and back. No additional yarn is required to produce this effect.

Art Origin

A cluster of very talented weavers and national awardees, Nupatna is located in Cuttack district of Odisha, about 70 kilometres from Bhubaneswar. Nuapatna is famous for Khandua Silk & Cotton and Ikat Sarees
