Rich And Traditional
Bomkai is one of the traditional faces from Orissa and showcases the adept works of an artisan. It was first crafted in the southern coastal parts of Orissa. Undoubtedly then, the fabric carried an essence of the ensembles that originated on the shores. While most coastal areas of Southern Orissa are involved in the creation of Bomkai sarees, it is in Sonepur that the prettiest of the fabric facades are found. Locally known as ‘Bandha’, the Bomkai concept of sarees is a part of the Orissan culture since 600 B.C. Bomkai is a magnificent innovation that has taken over the textile industry giving it a global push. Traditionally worn as an auspicious attire by the Brahmins of the South during rituals, Bomkai or Sonepuri is one of the most highly thought of attires in the state of Orissa and an illustrious one in other parts of the country.
The motifs and designs of the Bomkai portray mythology and well-kept secrets of the past. Inspired by folklore that spring from the roots of the rich Orissan culture, Bomkai is the heart of the textile industry of Southern India. However, Bomkai doesn’t ignore the inspirations that nature offers to everyone completely free of cost. Colors of the Bomkai saree are inspired by the effect of contrast. For example, with yellow, you might see a nice bright green, and with an orange saree, an equally absorbing yet mesmerizing black border. Sometimes, the pallu might be double shaded, giving out a reflection of royal luster. Latticework, which creates small diamond-like shapes, is also commonly found on the border of a Bomkai saree.
The creativity and the love of the people for Bomkai spark innumerable concepts within the domain of Bomkai industries. Innumerable varieties of Bomkai have been introduced to date. Some of the most popular ones include Sonepuri, Pasapali, Barpali, and Bapta saris. One of the most interesting innovations in the history of Bomkai was the introduction of zari thread work. Angular discontinuance that stuck to creating traditional motifs on the pallu makes use of a new base in the form of shimmering zari. In that way, the Bomkai manages to sell the old wine in a new bottle successfully, not compromising on the likes and dislikes of the industry.
