Patola is a form of double-ikat weaving, meaning that both the warp (vertical) and weft (horizontal) threads are dyed before being strung on the loom. This intricate process results in a bold pattern, often on a red background. It is practiced in many parts of Southeast Asia but is a particular specialty of Gujarat, where silk patola saris are often part of a bride’s trousseau.
Our silky rayon V-neck travel shirt mimics traditional, geometric patola patterns. The bold pattern camouflages any wrinkles, but the material smoothes itself after unpacking, making this is an excellent choice that expands your travel wardrobe by complementing everything from jeans to khakis to a black skirt, and much more. 3/4-length sleeves.
