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.Khandua Pata/Silk Saree, the pride of Odisha is mainly woven in villages in Nuapatna and Maniabandha Blocks. Khanduas are not only called ‘the pride of Odisha’ but they are rich in culture and heritage and closely associated with Lord Jagannath in many ways. Moreover, historically Lord Jagannath’s ‘Angavastra’ is made from Khandua fabric. Other than Gitagobinda-Khandua-pata (silk), other cotton fabrics are also used in the daily rituals of the deities.
Khandua Silk sarees are made in Nuapatna village of Cuttack district in the state of Odisha.
