In this sari the weaver has chosen the motifs known as popat-kunjar (parrot and elephant). Parrots, elephants and floral sprays are arranged inside each diamond-pattern of the ground. The pallu and the border have geometrical and floral motifs. The designs are in green, yellow and white.
Patola has a special significance in Gujarat. It is a sari for auspicious occasions and hence mostly done in red with auspicious symbols such as the white elephant, a mango twig, a young woman and a parrot, to augur peace and prosperity. If affordable, it is one of the important items of the bridal trousseau.
