Gollabama sarees are woven in the Siddipet region of Telangana. The sarees get their name from the unique inlay technique and motif of the gollabhama, milkmaid. The motifs are said to have been inspired by the charm of the women of the golla, cattle-rearing community, dressed in their brightly hued skirts and veils carrying pots of milk and curd.
The saree is often in a single colour dotted with small gollabhama butas throughout the fabric, while the larger intricate motifs are showcased on the border and, or pallu. Typically, three motifs are used for saree designs viz. Gollabhama, Bathukamma and Kolatam, with Gollabhama being the most commonly used.
