Dupattas


Dupatta is said to be a symbol of modesty in India. It is basically a long rectangular piece of cloth or scarf that has multi-purposes and is usually worn with a kurta/kurti, salwar-kameez, ghagra-choli etc. Its existence can be dated back to the Indus Valley Civilization where the sculpture of the Priest King has it’s left shoulder draped with a dupatta-like chaddar. According to Sanskrit literature, in the ancient times women used certain scarfs and veils which were called Uttariya(shoulder veil), Avagunthana(cloak veil), Sirovas-tra(head-veil) and Mukhapata(face-veil). The dupatta is said to have evolved from the Uttariya.
A dupatta can be draped in various ways. The dupatta can be worn in the Rajasthani style along with a ghagra-choli wherein one end of the dupatta is tucked at the waist of the ghagra. The Rajasthani women also wear it over the head with both ends hanging loose. The dupatta with a salwar-kameez is usually draped over the chest and shoulders, hanging at the chest like a garland. It can also be worn as close as possible to the neck. Nowadays, women prefer wearing the dupatta by draping it over one shoulder, by neatly folding it in pleats and pinning it at the tip of the shoulders. Or, it could also be left hanging loosely draped over one of the arms. The dupatta can also be draped with a western attire, such as the jeans. With the latter it can be used as a sarong or a sash. In some states the dupatta is also draped at the lower part of the body, such as half-sari in south india, chaddar in Assam and Chunri in Gujarati.
