Process of Patwa Threadwork

Patwa comes from the Hindi word "pat" meaning silk, and those who make silk and cotton yarn are called "Patwa". Patwas are made using a special technique of tying knots and wrapping threads. In this technique, craftsmen use multiple silk threads of different colors and weave them together. This thread further leads to beads.

After the wedding, Vishnu told him to make silk ornaments for his livelihood. Therefore, a group of people is known as Patwa. They are said to have migrated to Maharashtra, Rajasthan ,and Gujarat. These artisans traveled from town to town to sell jewels wrapped in thread, along with other trinkets and trinkets, such as nail polish, wooden toys, or other items bought for resale.
