Dongria sarees are the finest sarees coming from the hills. The dongria sarees come from the word ‘Dongr’ which means ‘field on mountains’. The story of dongria sarees is a beautiful one. On the tribal hill of Niyamgiri, all of the Unwed Dongria girls sit at ‘Dongr’ embroidering the dongria handlooms. They weave beautiful geometric patterns on plain handwoven shawls for their to-be-husband or fiance.
The handlooms of Dongria have triangle-shaped motifs throughout which represent the Niyamgiri Hills- the home of the primitive tribal group of Dongria Kondhs. The handlooms of shawls were converted to dongria silk sarees and dongria cotton sarees. The weavers from Nuaptana and Sambalpuri took the art and presented the world with dongria silk sarees. With the jala butti and dobby works, these absolute gems of handlooms have won adulation all over the work. The multi-thread adds so much beauty to the dongria silk sarees. The tribal art form is one of the finest collections of Odisha handloom that you can see throughout. The details of dongria cotton sarees deserve so much love. All of the dongria silk sarees collection is so much with charm and flamboyancy. Your eyes are having a such good time with the colors and motifs of dongria silk sarees and dongria cotton sarees.
