Silk Dhotis

Silk Dhotis

An integral part of Indian men’s traditional attire since ages, Dhoti also known as panche, vesti, dhuti, mardani, chaadra, dhotar and pancha, is a rectangular pure silk piece of unstitched cloth, usually around 4.5 metres long, wrapped around the waist and the legs and knotted at the waist. Soft and comfortable, these handloom pure silk dhotis are from Kanchipuram, the city that is known to make exemplary silk weaves. Richly textured and flaunting vibrant colors with fine gold borders, these silk dhotis come with angavastram or dupatta. Crafted for special occasions like religious ceremonies and rituals, formal functions and festivals, wear them with pleated angavastram and flaunt your chiseled and toned body or wrap the angavastram around to add a touch of royalty or simply pair up the dhoti with a silk shirt and get ready to enjoy the special occasions of life in style. Our handloom silk dhotis collection comes with adequate length and width to provide more pleats and great fall. Buy silk dhotis online at Shatika and step up in style with your other half on important occasions in life.

History and Origin of Dhoti:

Dhoti is derived from the word Dhauta, the word that is related to the Sanskrit word pancha and dhuvati which means ‘five’ referring to the fact that a five yard-long strip of cloth is used. It may also be used to denote the five knots used in an elaborate south Indian manner of draping the garment. Although the exact date of origin of Dhoti is not known but it can be traced back to 5th century BC. There are evidences that significantly show that men of the Indus valley civilization usually wore a Dhoti around their waist. The garment that they used to cover the upper part of body was different in north and south Harappan civilization but dhoti was common in both the regions. Firstly Dhoti was made in cotton and was very comfortable and easy to wear for daily use adapting well to the dry and hot summers of India. Silk Dhotis were an integral part of the costumes of kings and rulers of ancient India. The costume is found to be wrapped in the ancient architectures depicting Ashoka, the Chakravarti King in Amravati, Andhra Pradesh. In ancient times, Kings and poets are seen using silk dhotis in rich colors and elaborate gold-thread embroideries..
