Bomkai Saree was first originated in the village of Bomkai in Ganjam district of Orissa. Bomkai Sarees are intricately woven on a pit loom with low count silk/cotton yarn. Bomlai Sarees are also known as Sonapuri Sarees and is available in cotton and silk fabrics. Here we are showing only silk sarees. The borders of these sarees are often in contrasting colours and the pullus marked by intricate tread work.
The motifs on the Bomkai Sarees are inspired from nature and tribal art, giving the saree a fascinating look that makes it perfect for aristocracy.
A Bomkai Silk Saree is largely worn by Kathak dancers around the world.
