Weaver communities of Maniabandha and Nuapatana of Odisha traditionally weave this kind of saree. Common motifs are star, temple, conch, rudraksh, fish, chakra, lotus etc .The inspiration of all its designs comes from nature. The origin of Khandua traces back to 12th Century AD and it is closely associated with Lord Jagannath Temple rituals at Puri, Odisha. Originally designed using red, yellow, maroon, and cream colors, they contain Texts from the Gita Govinda. Gita Govinda or the song of Govinda is a work composed by the 12th century Indian poet Jayadeva. It describes the relationship between Krishna and the gopis (female cowherds), in particular Radha. Khandua is traditionally red or orange in color. The red color is prepared naturally from the shorea robusta (sal tree).The design motif has an auspicious elephant that represents Buddha surrounded by trailing vine with peacocks in it, a large many petaled flower, a unique Odisha's animal called Nabagunjar, a deula kumbha. The elephant in Khandua ikat from Nuapatana usually varies from elephant motives in ikat from sambalpuri saree as well as ikat from other parts of Orissa. Khandua has plain borders in contrary to borders with motifs in case of the other ikat of Odisha. During the rule of Gajapatis , Sarees are made and transported to jagannath temple. Khandua saree made of one piece of khandua silk called caukandika. Lightweight, soft, pocket-friendly, stunning. Khandua cottons are every woman's go-to sarees due to such endearing qualities.
