Kota doria saree

It is also known as Kota Doriya. This is one of many types of sarees made in Kota in Rajasthan. These sarees are pure cotton and silk. They have a square check like a pattern on them that is also known as khat. They are very fine weaves and are very lightweight. It is hand woven on traditional pit loom. While weaving, they smear onion juice and rice paste on the yarn that makes the yarn very strong and there is no need of finishing. Doria means thread. My Kota doria saree has bandhej or bandhani on it. This technique of tying produces the dots like effect. I wore with a silver grey top.
