|Phuta/Phoda Phuta check sarees are handwoven with thick low count cotton in Mayurbhanj district. The Santhal tribals forming a vast chunk of Odisha's tribal population, wear these check sarees. The organic cotton feels warm in winter and cool in summer. Various tribal motifs are embroidered into these sarees like arrow, duck, child, man, shield, flower, deer etc., as the tribals live closely with Nature. To weave a single saree, it takes about three days. While the original Santhal Sarees are 5 metre long and 38 inches wide, nowadays 5.2 metre long and 40” wide sarees being specially made. So, proudly flaunt a Santhal saree and be one of the Nature-loving tribe!
