The traditional Sambalpuri Kameez in its cotton and silk versions is a captivating fabric from the tribal belt of Odisha. Sambalpur in the state of Odisha, India, is famous for its Sambalpuri variety of cotton and silk fabrics, using Ikkat patterns or the tie-dye method in their making. Cotton and mercerized cotton are used in making sambalpuri cotton saris.
The appeal of Sambalpuri mercerized Cotton salwar kameez
The need for a fabric similar to silk, which has lustre, strength, smoothness and soft feel, plus its elasticity and desirable quality to acquire most colours and shades is provided by mercerized cotton, a more affordable and appealing substitute. Cotton has the best absorption capacity among fabrics and is a ‘breathing’ fabric which allows free air movement. This allows the body to cool and keeps it comfortable in hot and sultry weather conditions. Mercerization is a treatment for cellulosic materials like cotton fabric and thread that gives the fabric or yarns a lustrous appearance, strengthens them and yet maintains the above mentioned quality of pure cotton.
The Ikkat tie & dye Sambalpuri shalwar kamiz
The Ikkat style of weaving is employed in the hand-woven Sambalpuri salwar kameez using geometrical patterns. Ikkat is a technique which involves applying bindings, which resist dye penetration to the threads in pre-determined patterns, and then dyeing the threads. These dyed threads are then woven to produce the desired pattern. Within the ikkat style are variants of single-ikkat and double-ikkat. Alternately the tie-die method of weaving and then dyeing, known as ‘bandhakala’ is also used. Here the threads are first woven and the resist bindings then applied to the fabric before dyeing it.
This traditional art uses vegetable dyes to a large extent, with a leaning toward artificial colours in present day creations. Black, yellow, orange, maroon, are the preferred hues. Sambalpuri cotton salwar suits find preference for daily-wear as well as for casual occasions and generally housewives and college-goers choose to wear them.
