Collection: Art Textile (Tie & Dye)

Odisha, a state in eastern India, is renowned for its rich textile heritage, particularly in the art of tie-dye. This traditional craft, also known as "bandha," involves intricate processes of tie-dyeing warp and weft threads to create unique patterns on the loom. The state is home to several notable locations where this art form is practiced, with Sambalpur, Berhampur, Mayurbhanj, and Nuapatna being prominent centers.

Artisans involved in this craft include skilled weavers and silkworm cultivators who have mastered the centuries-old techniques of silkworm cultivation and silk production. The rare silk fabric produced at Nuapatna in Cuttack district, embellished with verses from the Gitagovinda, is used to dress the idols at the Jagannath Temple.

Odisha's tie-dye artisans have received numerous awards for their exceptional work, including the prestigious National Award for Handloom and Handicrafts. Sudam Guin from Mathasahi, Cuttack has won National Award in 1976 for his significant art. Ghanashyam Meher from Sambalpur has won State Award in 2006 as well.
