Kota Doria Sarees

Modern Kota City and Kota District of Rajasthan have been derived from parts of the erstwhile Kota State. The former State of Kota formed the Eastern part of present Rajasthan. It was surrounded by the former Indian States of Jaipur and Gwalior in the North, Bundi in the West, Udaipur, Jhalawar, Indore and Gwalior in the South and Khilchipur, Rajgarh and Gwalior in the West. Though Kota started as an offshoot of Bundi in A.D. 1624, it ultimately superceded its parent in power, economy and cultural grandeur. At the time of the integration of the Indian States to the Indian Union in 1948, it was the 5th largest state (in revenue) in the newly formed state of Rajasthan.

The Eastern region of Rajasthan is widely known as ‘Hadauti’ or the Land of the Hadas. Hadauti comprises the old Hada states of Bundi and Kota, which in modern times means Bundi, Kota, Baran and Jhalawar. Hadauti is a region of large expanse of fertile plains having rich black cotton soil and of ranges of low hills and river gorges covered with thick forest. The land slopes gently from the South towards The North and has the river Chambal traversing across it from the South to the North, with its many tributaries. It is the only perennial river in the largely desert state of Rajasthan, draining itself into the Yamuna. Together with a bountiful rainfall, these waters provide a prosperous and verdant look to this land, which is the main granary of Rajasthan.

Rajasthan is a veritable kaleidoscope of ethnic handicrafts, vivid hand-spun fabrics and an exciting range of handloom products. One of the premier handloom clusters in Rajasthan is the Kota Doria cluster.

The silk sarees were originally woven in mysore from where some weaver families were brought to Kota by the great patron of crafts, Maha Rao Kishore Singh (1684-1695). The weavers settled in kaithun village in the early 17th century and gradually grew in number. Kota Doria is also sold famously as ‘Kota Saree’ or ‘Kota Masuria Saree’.

Today the craft tradition is one of the hot favorites among the fashion conscious youth and the demand is rapidly growing in domestic as well as in international market.
