Originating from the Khambat (Cambay) region of Gujarat, Gharcholas have been used for years in Gujarati weddings.A sub-set of Bandhani (Indian tie and dye art), Gharchola was earlier made by traditional weavers and Bandhani workers. The dying process of Gharchola is historically associated with Jamnagar, as it’s believed that the water quality of Jamnagar is excellent for producing the rich red colours of Gharcholas.
There are many cultural practices and religious/ ritualistic symbols associated with this integral aspect of Indian society. Gharchola is one of them!
