Dupattas, also known as Odhni or Chunni, is an emblem of modesty, and grace in Indian culture. The origin of this stunning swathe of fabric can be dated back to the era of Indus Valley Civilization.

The Dupatta is believed to be a modern interpretation of the ancient Uttariya – a single piece of fabric that was meant to curl and drape around the torso. Uttariya was draped by both men and women as one can spot on the stunning sculptures and paintings hailing from that era.

Over time, the dupatta evolved as a staple in women’s wardrobes and the draping styles evolved with time, styles, and seasons.

Interestingly, the grace of the dupatta has made quite a mark even on international fashion grounds and runways.
