An ethereal collection of checkered weaves, Masuria, is an amalgamation of effortless grace and elegance.
Kota Doria gets its name from Kota, a tiny village in Rajasthan where craftsmen have been practicing this skill for decades. Also known as Kota Masuria, folklore suggest that the craft originated in Mysore and then moved to Kota where it is now based, hence the word 'Masuria' in the name. Kota Dorias started out as headgears (pagris) for the royal court (8 to 9 inches) and then moved into dhotis of 36-inch width. Only when the width was raised 46 inches did the versatility of the fabric as a saree come in vogue. It is woven on a traditional pit loom in such a fashion that produces square checked patterns on the fabric, known as "khats". The yarn is made so strong that no additional finishing is needed. The raw materials required for making Kota Doria sarees include warping paste, silk yarn and cotton yarn while also using the finest of zari at times. The yarn needs to be prepared before the weaving process begins. Fine Kota Doria fabric has low yarn count which gives it the signature gossamer-like sheer texture and feather-like feel.
Our versatile collection features Kota Doria sarees and lehengas in a plethora of colors and styles, making them the perfect choice for any occasion.
