Process Of Making Rajkot Patola
Step 1 : Design
Patola designs are visualized on graph paper.
Step 2 : Dyeing
Designs are created by tying knots on warp and weft. Cotton thread is used to tie the portion marked out in conformity with the proposed design. Tied portion remains unexposed to color. Portion that was used to absorb one color is tied again to protect while applying color on other portion. Desired design is produced with desired color combination thus by tying, untying, and dying.
Step 3 : Weaving
On completion of dying process, the threads of the warp of different repeats of a pattern are put together in a sequence on the loom, so that the design becomes visible. The threads of wefts are wound on to bobbins and kept in the bamboo shuttle for weaving process. The Patola is woven on a primitive hand operated harness loom. Weaving process involves moving bamboo shuttle to and fro through warp shades. Each weft thread is thoroughly examined and matched with each part of the warp design pattern while weaving.
Step 4 : Finishing
Final product is reviewed for quality and fine tuning is carried out by weaver to ensure final and enchanting Patola.
