The silk woven at Patan is known by the name patola. The weaving of patola silk is the most difficult of all the weaving methods. They use double ikkat style to weave the silk. This particular style is used only in Indonesia apart from the patola weavers. It takes months to make saris in this design and for the same reason, they come with high price tags.
The craftsmanship of weaving patola saris is now done only by the Salvi community.
