Rajasthani Rajputi Poshak
Rajasthan literally translates to the royal state of India. The name itself means ‘land of kings’. Its beautiful architecture is complemented by a rich culture and aesthetics and the fascinating lifestyles of its people and places.
The traditional attire of Rajasthan that captures its beautiful history is the Rajasthani Rajputi Poshak - an elegant royal attire worn by the majority of women in Rajasthan.
Rajasthani Rajputi Poshak, a traditional dress
This traditional attire not only reflects royalty but is different from other attires all over the world. The word Poshak means attire in Hindi and the Rajasthani Poshak is distributed into 4 different parts - Kanchali, Kurti, Odhani, and Ghagra.
Back in the time, when women were not allowed to wear just anything they wished to wear, nor did they have much freedom. They also had to cover their faces and this was done by pulling the Odhani over the face. This practice was called using the Ghunghat. The ghunghat in states like Rajasthan was necessary. Also the women had to cover their body inch-by-inch and hence they had to wear this beautiful traditional dress which covers the whole body, and only leaves the hands visible.
With changing times, this rajputi poshak gained even more popularity and is still considered an important part of the rich and royal heritage of Rajasthan.
The beautiful embroidery on this attire was initially designed by skillful tailors of royal families who also used real gold and silver to give the entire rajputi poshak an even more rich and royal look. With time, many other people learned to design and stitch this kind of outfit.
