Dupatta & Stole

Dupatta

The word Dupattā, derived from Middle Indic elements stemming from Sanskrit, is a combination of du- (meaning "two", from Sanskrit dvau, "two") and paṭṭā (meaning "strip of cloth," from paṭṭaḥ), i. e., scarf usually doubled over the head. A dupatta is traditionally worn across both shoulders and around the head. Dupatta can also be worn like a cape around the entire torso.
Mora dupattas are lighter, more summery versions of the shawls where I collage various textiles together that inspire my colour palette or texture placements. I also play with intricate patchworks in the dupattas to bring out the craftsmanship of “stitching”.

With Mora dupattas, I keep myself connected to the roots of Mora, using textiles that I associate with my childhood and early years of learning about textiles. You will see in the Dupattas of Mora 2021, a diversity from Kanchipuram, Venkatagiri, Uppada, Ikat, Sanganer, Sambalpur, offering temple borders, prints and geometric patterns.
Range of Length: 90-100 inches
Range of Width: 32-36 inches. Some designs accommodated to 38 inches
We do provide shirt/ kurta/ pants fabrics if someone wishes me to design a complete ensemble palette. The cost of these fabrics is additional to the cost of Stole. I can suggest stitching patterns that could compliment the look of the Stole. However, at this stage I am unable to engage myself in the responsibility of tailoring orders.

Stole

A stole is narrower than a typical shawl and of simpler construction than a cape- almost always a rectangle piece of clothing that one can wrap around the neck or carry about the shoulders or arms.
When I design the stoles, I keep in my mind, lifestyles of those women who are tending to responsibilities beyond their own self. I remind myself, they perhaps need something to feel good, to give them additional motivation for that day, and also at the same time, be comfortable enough to multiply themselves in many roles.

So, I keep stoles fun and quirky. Something that one may want to wear often. As that special staple.
