The Story Behind It

Pattu: The Traditional Indian Tunic with Beautiful Borders

Hand loomed in the city of Mangalgiri, the traditional South Indian cotton tunic is called a "pattu." The lightweight pattu is distinguished from the common tunic because of its contrasting metallic border. To weave a pattu, artisans use a special loom called a "pit loom". Fixed to the ground, this unique loom requires a pit below where the loom pedal is placed. The weaver traditionally sits on the floor and uses their hands and legs to weave the cotton fabric. An established element of India's rich tradition of craftsmanship, this intricate weaving process has been passed down for generations.

Purple Tunic 5 5 1 1
Forever Favorite This tunic is made from a really fine cotton fabric. The fit is wonderful...I do like to iron the trim, but it washes wonderfully. The fabric is the two toned type that shimmers in the light, very similar to some silks. It's cool and comfortable...the colors were amazing. I got this in the Purple and the Blue...should have gotten the Orange too. I hope they bring this product back so I can get them as gifts. Love this tunic! March 15, 2013
