Phulia

Until a few years ago the Phulia cluster was known for its cotton saris and exclusive hand woven scarves that were exported world wide. In recent years the cluster underwent a revolutionary change that has resulted in an entirely new genre of saris.

Initially, only superfine, handspun yarn was used to weave a Phulia sari. Their supplementary weft was of a slightly different count or the ground weft was itself plied for this purpose. The patterns were woven with dexterity on a simple pit loom with no attachments of any kind. However, now these saris are woven with the help of Jala or Jacquard attachments and use a variety of different yarns such as Tussar, Matka, Geecha and Dupion to create vivid texture and colours that have since become the signature of the Phulia sari.
