Indian sari enthusiast woman makes it a point to have at least one sari from each part of India. They desire to own a sari that is the specialty of a particular region of India. Each state of India has its own specialist sari. The wardrobe of the Indian woman also has synthetic, printed, plain saris apart from the specialties. Women in India complement these specialty saris with matching blouses and designer jewelry. Kota sari is the specialty from the desert state of Rajasthan. The fabric derives its name from the city of the same name. The saris are made in and around the city of Kota. Kota saris are also known as Kota Doria. They fabric is transparent and yet cotton-silk weave.

The silk provides the required transparency while the cotton provides the necessary strength. The absence of uniformity in the weave forms the graph-like pattern. These fabrics are woven in a way that the graph-like pattern formed from the different thicknesses of fiber is prominently visible. These checked patterns itself within the weave are known as Khat. Other elaborate patterns are also used for weaving these saris. These saris are mostly worn during the summer months to get relief from the extreme summer heat. The designs are so made they give a weightless feel. The weaving, spinning and dyeing are done by skilled artisans. Basically white is the basic color and later dyed in different vibrant hues. The weaving of doria requires special skill and aesthetic knowledge of color combination. Kota saris are sold with matching blouse pieces and are available in 3 different types- Plain, Printed and Zari. In Plain Kota saris the checks are formed either by coarse cotton or golden threads. And the last one is Zari Kota where the borders are embellished with sequence and zari work.
