An interesting glimpse into the Heritage:
This weave orginates from a small town called Bomkai in the State of Orrisa, east of India. The weave, done with cotton and silk, has a modern design with a traditional tinge to it. The heavier the use of gold/copper silk threads, the richer the look. A broad border and an even broader pallu (the end) of a saree are all aethetics of a traditional Bomkai weave.
Mayur means a Peacock in Hindi. Motifs of Bomkai are often inspirations from their mythological stories and has a tribal edge to it.
