Double ikat involves resisting on both warp and weft and then interlacing them to form fine intricate patterns.

A seemingly lost tradition has been revived in its new form.

There are many variations to the Rajkot Patola Sarees. Rajkot pure silk Patola sarees are known for their contrasted colours and zari borders. Pure silk sarees designed with latest ikkat and bandhni prints are eye-catchers worn for special occasions. Stylish embroidery designer Sarees with patterns of zari zardozi, ari, gota are elegant affairs chosen for bridal ceremonies. Patch works on the Patola Saree enhance it further. The Rajkot pure silk sari with multi color ikkat prints having rich jari border with a contrasting colour zari pallu is fancy wear appropriate for corporate functions, festivals and traditional occasions. While the Heavy designer Rajkot Patola Silk Saree is an integral part of Indian wedding parties and other social gatherings. Kundans and sequins embroidery work adorning the Rajkot patolas make them stylishly attractive and apt for college functions, parties and special invites.
