Kota Doria

Woven in the Kota and Bundi districts of Rajasthan, Kota Doria saris have a delicate, net-like plain weave structure that is very light in weight and has a transparent appearance. Considered to have originated from Mysore, the fabric was initially known as Masoriya. Initially, this sari was woven in cotton yarns of varying thickness, to create the look of an architectural jali or square grid. This style was later perfected by combining cotton and silk yarns in both the warp and the weft. This structure is colloquially known as the Doria and has come to characterize this genre of saris. The modern day Kota saris have highly ornate motifs in the body and pallav created using the Jamdani technique of weaving.
