The elegant saris and handlooms in the collection are certainly from the weavers of Orissa. The traditional village of Orissa, Nuapatna, is known for the skills of the weavers. The tussah or the tussar variety of silk is used by the weavers to weave home furnishings.

For the production of Silk, intensive labor is required. The villagers put their dexterous efforts to get the strong, lustrous and lightweight threads, able to absorb dyes. The children in the village collect the cocoons of the silkworms and place them in hot water. Through this way, the worms get killed and the loose filaments are twined together to form a single strand of thread. In the local dialect (Oriya), this process is called as 'Janga'.

The locally produced silk is woven according to the age-old local traditions. Alternatively, the silk textiles are also regarded as the sign of the social status. For the weaving of the silk textiles, various techniques like Ikat, Tapestry and supplementary thread patterning weave are used.

The time taking technique of Ikat has earned popularity to Orissa. Indigo and other natural dyes have been used in the textiles since the prehistoric times. Although, the chemical dyes are nowadays becoming very popular. The threads are horizontally dyed before weaving them into textile. The threads are arranged on a frame for dying. Tape is tied on the parts where dying is not required. Thereafter, the thread is removed from the frame and dipped into the color. During the second color dye, the tape is removed and placed on the other part for protection. This traditional technique is several thousand years old.

The world famous Ikat textiles could be bought from the government co-operative shops as well as the main bazaars of Bhubaneshwar, the capital city.
