Collection: Kota Doria Cotton Sarees

          Handwoven Kota doria sarees are woven on a traditional pit loom in such a way that a translucent, gauze-like weave with a small checks-like pattern is created. These delicately wrought checks are known as 'khats' in the local language. The weavers smear onion juice and rice paste on the yarn before readying it for weaving, thus making the yarn and the resulting fabric extremely durable and hardy.

          In early 18th Century, the Prince of Kota, Rao Kishore Singh, a General in the army  of Shah Jahan, brought some weaver families from Mysore. These weavers were referred to as ‘Masurias’ by the locals. They were settled in Kaithoon village just outside Kota and they started weaving the lightweight kota doria fabric which soon became the royal fabric of Rajasthan.  Initially it was worn as head gear by royal court members but soon enough, it started being used for everything including dupattas and sarees because of its easy elegance and high level of comfort in the summer months.

          At present, around 3000 families still live in Kaithoon and still earn their livelihood by weaving Kota Doria fabric and sarees.

          Our Kota doria collections comprise mainly of power-loom, pure kota cotton fabric that has been treated by various artisans to create different kinds of sarees. Our Bagru block printed sarees are made in Chhippon Ka Moholla in Bagru in Rajasthan. The Ajrakh sarees are made by our Ajrakh artisan in Ajrakhpur in Bhuj, Gujarat. Some of our sarees are made by our team of crochet and block printing artisans in Kota, Rajasthan.
