Patta-chitra means painting on cloth/patta. It has flourished in Odisha since earlier than 15th century.
Earth, stone, and mineral colours are used for painting on patta or specialised canvas medium prepared organically for painting such as: vermillion red- hingula (cinnabar); brick red- geru (red ochre); yellow- hartala (orpiment); white- sankh (conch shell); black- lamp black; gum resin- kaintha plant etc.
For Sarees/stoles/dupattas/fabric : Fabric colour is used, so that the color remains steadfast.
Some of the popular themes are Radha-Krishna, Mahabharat, Ramayana, Lord Jagannath, Dasavatar etc. Our beautiful mythological tales are often told by Pattachitra paintings.

With Dussehra & Kumar Purnima festivities, we can't wait for Diwali to come! Here we present our second exclusive Diwali theme saree!

On Diwali which falls on the dark Kartik Amavasya day, the holy pilgrimage city of Puri is lighted up with earthern lamps & various crackers courtesy the residents of Puri & pilgrims from the world over. Especially, at the front of the famous Puri Jagannath Temple - all along the Bada Danda (Grand Road), is the grandest scene to behold! Here, the "ବଡ଼ବଡ଼ିଆ ଡାକ" (Badabadiya Daaka) ritual is done whereby holding bunches of jute-stems in hand, thousands of devotees set these afire to invoke their ancestors to descend from their heavenly abode and visit Earth to bless them!
