Passapalli Ikat Saree

Remember I had a saree haul from Utkalika in Delhi. Check out my previous buys from there here. Utkalika is the Odisha state emporium in Delhi. This stunning saree is woven in Sambalpur. It has double ikat. It is evident from its Passapalli motifs. You can also see lotus and some birds in the aanchal. It has small checks which are very tedious to weave through tie and dye ikat technique.
I matched it with a blouse that is a mix of ikat and ajrakh.
This saree is a unique mix of traditional and smart/contemporary. The colour is gorgeous Cerulean blue.
