This ethnic fabric was once worn only during rites and religious functions. The exclusive Bomkai Saris employ the ikat style of tie-dye, where the threads are dyed with contrasting colours before they are woven. Motifs are woven with a special extra weft’ technique. This traditional art uses vegetable dyes to a large extent. Black, yellow, orange, maroon, are the preferred hues. Bright coloured panels with extra motifs on a highly contrasting background make this tribal art fabric uniquely stand out.
Motif patterns commonly adorning the fabric are bitter gourd, the atasi flower, the kanti-phul or small flower, peacocks and birds, Konark temple, conches. The initial or large motif known as Buttah, such a bird sitting on a tree, is woven on the body. This accentuates the fabric look.
