Beautiful handwoven mercerised cotton gollabhama dupatta. Gollabhama dupattas are woven in the siddipet district of the Indian State of Telangana. Gollabhama dupattas are unique for their inlay technique and motifs. The motifs on the dupattas are inspired by the charm of the women of the golla (cattle-rearing) community dressed in their brightly hued skirts and veils carrying pots of milk and curd.
The intricate Gollabhamas dolls/ladies weaved on these dupattas are neither embroidered nor printed but are meticulously woven into the border of the dupatta.
While creating these motifs, the weaver passes coloured threads (for each motif) through the warp to achieve the resulting design.

Weaving a Gollabhama dupatta takes around 3-5 days. Every piece is a rare piece. Which when bought would not leave your wardrobe for decades.
