    Originally worn to show modesty, the dupatta is now a popular accessory to wear with many different types of clothes, such as salwar kameezes, Kurtis, and ghagras. Today, the traditional outfit can even be paired with western wear to meld eastern and western styles.

    History Of Dupatta 

    Throughout South Asia, the traditional dupatta is worn in many places. Vedic Indians wore three garments, namely the nivil, the vasas, and the adhivasa. In ancient times, the adhivasa resembled the dupatta in modern times. As opposed to today, the dupatta was worn by both men and women during the Vedic period. Over time, the dupatta evolved from being mainly practical to complimenting a woman's overall outfit as a complement to coordinating suits. Dupattas now measure two meters in length. The dupatta was worn initially with a ghagra choli or salwar kameez, and it covered the head and upper body. Modesty and respect for family elders were the motives behind wearing it. Women still cover their heads when entering a place of worship as an age-old tradition.

    About Block Print With Natural Dye 

    Despite printing designs onto fabric having originated around 4,500 years ago in China, the best examples of hand-blocked fabric originate from the Indian subcontinent. Natural plant dyes were an important part of Indian culture. Indians were specialists in mordants (metallic salts that add color to fabric and make it adhere). Dabu, a method for reserving dye-free areas of designs created through mud resist-printing, was also popular in this region. Through combinations of mordants and resist stamping and dying, Indian printers created print designs that were highly sought after in Southeast Asia and Mughal palaces as well as western European capitals. The ineffable beauty and humanity of block prints lie in the telltale signs of the human hand, regardless of imperfections. Itokri offers a line of block-printed dupattas that use only natural dyes. It is made from a fabric called gajji. Vegetable-based silk is used for the fabric gajji, which is woven with satin. Due to this unique weaving style, a piece of rich fabric with a glossy appearance is produced. iTokri offers a stunning line of gajji silk dupattas with a hand block print made with natural dye.
