Kota Ki कहानी

Kota Doria or Kota Doriya is the name of a light weight fabric made of tiny woven squares which is still hand woven on traditional pit looms near Kota in Rajasthan and in some of the surrounding villages. It is said that Rao Kishore Singh of Kotah brought weavers from Mysore in Karnataka to Kotah, in the mid 17th century, as they wove a characteristic small squared lightweight cotton fabric that is very comfortable to wear.
