About Rajputi PoshakRajputi Poshak

The dress consists of four garments which together sum up as “Poshak”; these are “Kanchali”, “Kurti”, “Ghagra” and “Odhani”. To make understand what are these and how they are worn here is a quick description, firstly “Kanchali”, it is an inner wear with sleeves which covers the upper body of a woman. “Kurti” is a sleeveless blouse worn over the “Kanchali”; it covers the upper body of women from neck to waist. “Ghagra” is a pleated skirt like garment worn below “Kurti” which covers the body from waist to feet. And last of the lot is “Odhani” is a long veil which is used to cover the head, face, and body, this provides world known grace to the Rajputi Poshak.                 

Rajputi Poshak on the basis of its use and form is categorized in two types, lighter range, and heavier range. The lighter version is worn by Rajput women every day; it is a simple “Rajputi Poshak” with very light work (usually Gotta Patti) over it. The heavier range is worn on festivals like “Teej” and “Gangor”. 

Few types of Rajputi Poshak-

 

Zardosi Poshak, Gotta Patti Poshak, Zari Poshak and Kundan Poshak. Zardosi is used in “Rajputi Poshak” to give it a rich feel, Zardosi is a type of embroidery which involves incorporation of tiny thin metal in the piece of clothing this gives the clothing a complete newness. Its embroidery involves the use of gold and silver threads to make elaborate designs on the clothing. Copper wires with a golden or silver polish are used with silk threads to ensure that the clothing looks awesome when finished. Last but not the least the magnificent effect of studded pearls and precious stones bring the Royal Rajputi heritage on a piece of clothing.

Gotta Patti Poshak, this art has its origin in Rajasthan it has also been copyrighted by the state of Rajasthan. Back in the days of Kings and Queens the Gotta Patti dresses were decorated by real gold and silver metals, but now as the time has passed and the metals have become really costly, the use of precious metal has decreased and instead small pieces of Zari ribbon are applied on the dresses with “Kinari work” to create sophisticated designs. Zari Poshak, Zari has its origin to Banaras; it is generally a brocade of tinsel thread which is meant for weaving and embroidery. Zari work on a “Rajputi Poshak” magnifies its beauty to a newer level.

Kundan Poshak, The Kundan is an exceptional form of art in this stones are added to highly refined gold and then it is put on the Rajputi Poshak which makes the clothing look spectacular.
