Indian Heritage at it's best!
I don't know where to start. Such professionalism is a rarity in today's world when it comes to retail. Few months ago, I wanted to send Saris to my sister and Sister -in -law back in India. I was bit wary as I had been duped in the past by websites boasting of being authentic retailers . Then I got in touch with Miss Jyoti Gupta who told me all about Kota Doria Weavers and all the beautiful Saris they weave. Needless to say Kota Doria dhoop chhaon has opened my eyes to something exquisite and beautiful ! My experience with them has been amazing. The process is very streamlined and thorough. I have, so far ordered three saris from them and I can't fault them. Jyoti is a thorough professional and liaised with me throughout. I got to see the videos of the saris before purchasing them. I have some very pleased relatives . The weavers even spoke to the receivers after delivery. The work on the Saris is so delicate and beautiful. Each sari is different from the other so you are spoilt for choice!Thank you weavers, Kota Doria dhoop chhaon and thank you Jyoti.
It's a big thumbs up from me

I am very happy with the Kota Doria sari I bought to help the weavers; my 'lockdown sari'. It is an unlikely blend of orange warp and mauve weft with subtle green detailing and discrete buties in both mauve and orange which is surprisingly successful as a colour combination. Although mainly cotton (80% cotton 20% silk) the light catches the fabric creating wondrous variations in shade and tone. The warp is neatly finished in tassels and the sari is of an unusually generous length. As a piece of workmanship it is magnificent. When one knows how many processes are necessary to produce a Kota Doria handwoven sari it becomes a pleasure to wear and a source of pride in India's unrivalled heritage.'
I was desperately looking for Kota Doria silk for my collection n one friend of mine introduced me to Ms. Jyoti.. she was very prompt to send me all the collection available .. was amazed n excited to see all pics .. it was difficult to choose one among all pretty designer saree .. the saree I bought was baby pink with silver zari .. gorgeous I must say .. payment process, saree delivery everything was very smooth . Extremely happy with my purchase . Highly recommended ..

Kota Doria or Kota Doriya is the name of a light weight fabric ( cotton or silk) made of tiny woven squares (khat) which is still hand woven on traditional pit looms in Kaithoon near Kota in Rajasthan and in some of the surrounding villages. It is said that Rao Kishore Singh of Kotah brought weavers from Mysore in Karnataka to Kotah, in the mid 17th century, as they wove a characteristic small squared lightweight cotton fabric that looks like graph paper and is suitable for turbans. Rao Kishore Singh died in a battle in Karnataka in 1696 while fighting for the Mughal Emperor Aurangabad.

Recently, I was introduced to sarees hand-woven by Kota Doria handlooms. The quality of the cloth inspired me to purchase a few more for myself and for a few friends. The designs are beautiful and contemporary yet traditional. I find it makes me look very elegant and I would highly recommend them to anyone else.

Kota doria sarees are a part of wardrobe of all saree loving ladies. The fact that Kota doria weavers are suffering made me sit up. After many many years, I again bought a kota doria, pink coloured one & wore with a brocade pink blouse. And lo! the results were amazing. I fell in love with kota doria.

I have been wearing Kota sarees during summers after my marriage..... but recently I saw the amount of labour that is being put in. It is a traditional treasure that I was introduced to. I liked the feel and love the beautiful patterns that these weavers weave.
