Since time immemorial UTKAL (Translated into the ancient language of Sanskrit, means the LAND OF EXQUISITE ART) and now known as the state of Orissa, is a land famous for its handlooms, handicrafts and sculptures.

Orissa handloom Sarees were exported to various foreign lands like Java, Sumatra and Indonesia thousands of years back. Now the ancient sea routes have vanished and modern age has taken over, yet the popularity of traditional Sarees have only grown and it world famous now.

If we say that Mehers handlooms is primarily responsible in today's world in popularizing hand over sarees and other handloom products all over the globe, we are simple stating a fact. Its no boasting that Mehers handlooms under the guidance of Mr. Chaturbhuj Meher the man known all over as the "MIDAS OF IKKAT" and Mr. Sankar Kumar Meher the man best known for his superlative Saree designs have revolutionized and popularized these products and are the true pioneers of Orissa handlooms. But for this family, these traditional products would not have been there anymore. It would have been in the hand of copycats who steal the designs and produce them in power looms.

The aim of this website is to bring forward into view to the public interested in the Orissa handlooms, that they see what is genuine and what is not and also enable them to purchase directly from the Mehers.
