Bollywood diva Sonam Kapoor who is the statement of beauty in the industry once again grabbed eyeballs by draping her mom's 35-year-old gharchola saree.

Sonam shared her pictures on Instagram with the caption "Wearing my mom’s 35 year old ghar chola. Thanks, mama for lending me this sari and blouse, love raiding your closet. Do you know what a ghar chola is and the significance of it? Would love to know your answers in the comment section".

What is Gharchola

Gharchola is a traditional Gujarati textile worn by brides during wedding ceremonies. It is typically a red or maroon silk cloth with intricate woven patterns, often featuring gold or silver threads. The fabric is adorned with elaborate motifs such as elephants, peacocks, and geometric designs, symbolizing prosperity, fertility, and good fortune. Gharchola holds significant cultural and symbolic importance in Gujarati weddings, representing the rich heritage and traditions of the region.

How is Gharchola prepared?

It begins with the selection of high-quality silk threads, which are chosen for their durability and sheen. Skilled artisans then set up a handloom, arranging the silk threads vertically and horizontally to create the base for weaving. Using a traditional weaving technique, the intricate patterns of Gharchola are carefully crafted into the fabric. These patterns often feature motifs symbolizing prosperity and fertility, such as elephants, peacocks, and geometric designs.

Additionally, gold or silver threads may be incorporated to add a touch of luxury to the saree. Once the weaving is complete, the Gharchola undergoes finishing processes, including washing and ironing, to enhance its texture and appearance. The end result is a stunning piece of textile that reflects the rich cultural heritage of Gujarat and holds significant symbolic importance in wedding ceremonies.

Throughout the process, artisans employ generations-old techniques and expertise, passed down through families. Each Gharchola saree is a testament to the skilled craftsmanship and attention to detail of these artisans, representing not only a garment but also a cherished cultural tradition deeply ingrained in Gujarati weddings.
