The Culture Central
Gota patti borders are native of Indian state of Rajasthan and can be further divided into different types based on their designs and use. Gota patti or gota ribbons are also use in Lappe ka kaam - also know as Indian applique embroidery in wider terms. Clothes embroidered with Lappe ka kaam are very exquisite, unique and made with lot of hard work and passion. The master-Karigars in India take great pride in being the experts of this beautiful art and believe me it takes years of practice to master this art.
Gota is a thin (or wide) woven ribbon in metallic colors such as gold, silver, red, green etc and they are applied on the edges of a stole or a dress to embellish it. Gota was born and raised in Rajasthan and now after being adopted by International fashion industry, it has gained new heights of popularity.
In Rajasthan, India gota is an essential part of day-to-day clothing and one can easily spot women clad in ghaghra-choli or six yards of modern sari embellished with got trims. But don’t assume that it’s all a women thing. Gota is equally popular among men when it comes to traditional Rajasthani wedding and party attire.
It’s official now, Marsala is the Pantone color of the year 2015 and so it is talk of the fashion town lately. While fashion and Interior designers are busy in creating new range of fashion, beauty and luxury products, fashionistas have started started planning in advance so as to what they will buy for home, kids and for themselves when their favourite products finally hit the market. Fashion and beauty blogs are on fire and getting loads of attention for this hot Sicilian color, named after a wine.
What comes to your mind when somebody talks about Aztec? To me, Aztec is a world full of colors and beautiful patterns. But in reality, it is more than just colors and patterns. According to Encyclopaedia Britannica, "Aztec, Nahuatl-speaking people who in the 15th and early 16th centuries ruled a large empire in what is now central and southern Mexico. The Aztec are so called from Aztlán (“White Land”), an allusion to their origins, probably in northern Mexico."
Sari is an integral part of Indian culture. Over the time, sari has taken many forms and adorned by women around the world, this six yards piece of fabric is now making its presence felt in the global fashion industry.
Sari is usually worn with a blouse or a top. But what would you say about those creative designers who thought it would be a good idea to make dresses for modern women using sari?
