Demystifying the chequered weave

The weavers in Kaithun, Rajasthan weave ordinary yarn threads (dor) into billowy yet regal fabric, hence the name Kota Doria. Square weave patterns (called Khat) produced by a combination of cotton and silk making it one of the finest open weave fabrics in India. The cotton provides stiffness and strength and the silk adds lustre and softness making the fabric an ideal choice for summers. The intricately woven zari (real silver/gold coated wires) designs lend a subtle yet magnificent touch helping you shine on any occasion. The fabric is an amalgamation of versatility & elegance.
Jyoti Gupta, co-founder of Aviral Business Solutions is working with the Kota Heritage Society to empower the weavers by providing them with digital and financial literacy, design intervention, selling and marketing strategies and sourcing of raw materials.
