Abstract: Traditional hand woven khana material is the choli or blouse material with extra warp dobby figures, which is from rural parts of northern Karnataka. There was a great need for diversification of its utility to suit the contemporary urban consumers. Therefore, the researcher has put forth the efforts in designing variety of elegant diwan sets, viz. block, crazy, log cabin, mosaic and tucked patch worked bed linens and has selected this mode for linking submerged rural art to the cosmopolitan urban customers. These newly designed diwan sets made of traditional hand woven khana material embellished with tribal hand embroideries will become the latest fashions to suit the trendy market and will further open a new vista for khana material to be used in home textiles.
