Traditional Orissa sarees from the village of the same name. They were woven in cotton but now silk Bomkai is increasingly popular. It has no ikat work. The body is often plain, and traditionally in red, white or black. But attention is on the many lines of patterns on the border and pallu. The pallu’s interesting feature: extra weft threads create the patterns, mainly geometric, of lines and single motifs. The warp threads of the body (field of saree) are cut and joined to the contrasting warp threads of the pallu. This point of joining can be in the form of large triangular patterns on the pallu or elaborate geometrical designs.
