Puttapaka Saree is a saree made in Puttapaka village, Samsthan Narayanpuram mandal in Nalgonda district, India. It is known for its unique Puttapaka tie and dye style of sarees.

The Weave
The design is over 200 years old. The ikat is warp-based unlike most other ikats designed predominantly on weft. The labour-intensive double ikat [warp and weft] is their strength. The warp design requires linear tying of the silk yarn strands. The unique design focus is on symmetry without undermining aesthetics. It closely resembles Sambalpuri saree.
