Gopalpur Gicha Tussar is a type of handloom textile that is produced using the Gicha (also known as Ghicha or Khewa) technique. This technique involves using the waste silk from Tussar (also known as Kosa) cocoons to create a textured yarn. The yarn is then used to weave a fabric that is soft, lightweight, and has a distinct texture.
The Gopalpur Gicha Tussar is named after the town of Gopalpur, which is located in the Ganjam district of Odisha, India. The fabric is hand-woven by skilled weavers, who use traditional techniques to create intricate designs and patterns on the fabric. The weavers often use bright and vibrant colors to dye the yarn, which gives the fabric a rich and luxurious look.
The Gopalpur Gicha Tussar is a popular choice for sarees, dupattas, and other traditional garments. The fabric is breathable, comfortable, and drapes beautifully, making it ideal for warm and humid climates. It is also durable and easy to maintain, which makes it a practical choice for everyday wear.
