Patan

There are many stunning textiles workshops in Gujarat. Here are some photographs.

The first are of the famous  patola of patan. The cloth is double ikat, making it wearable on both sides. This time-consuming process takes many months to complete as it involves dying both warp and weft in intricate patterns.







And then there is mushru cloth which is a satin weave on cotton base. Here are some photos from a mushru workshop near Patan.

  1. Jaipur is popularly famous as the name of the pink city as it is the stately capital of India’s leading state, Rajasthan. Jaipur inhales sovereigns and prosperity. With its massive forts, enthralling palaces and gigantic lifestyle, this city well hark back us of the regal epoch. If these hovering attractions do not tend to captivate you, then you might always experience the splendour of it by going on an elephant ride in Jaipur.
