Phoda Kumbha is a traditional handloom textile from the western region of Odisha in India. The name ‘Phoda Kumbha’ comes from two Odia words, where ‘Phoda’ means ‘explosion’ and ‘Kumbha’ means ‘pot’. The textile gets its name because of the unique process of creating the design, where the yarn is tied in such a way that it creates an explosion-like pattern on the fabric.
Phoda Kumbha is created using the Tie-and-Dye technique, where the yarn is tied in small knots before it is dyed, and then untied to reveal the unique pattern. The process is repeated several times to create intricate designs and patterns that are characteristic of Phoda Kumbha textiles.
The fabric used for Phoda Kumbha is mostly cotton or silk, and the colors used are usually natural and eco-friendly. The designs on the fabric are inspired by nature, and you will find patterns such as flowers, leaves, and other natural elements in the textile.
