Kota doria is one of many types of sari garments made at Kota, Rajasthan that are made of pure cotton and silk and have square like patterns known as khats on them. Originally called Masuria because they were woven in Mysore, it is said that the weavers were subsequently brought to Shada, a small town in Kota by Rao Kishore Singh, a general in the Mughal army in the late 17th and early 18th century and the sarees came to be known as 'Kota-Masuria'. Woven on a traditional pit loom, Kota Doria sarees are woven is in such a fashion that it produces delicately wrought square checks pattern on the fabric that are locally known as khats. The weaving of Kota Doria sarees undergo a process where in the weavers smear onion juice and rice paste into the yarn making the yarn so strong that no additional finishing is needed. The chequered weave Kota sarees are very popular because of their very fine weave and light weight making them an ideal summer wear.
