Special Correspondent

JAIPUR: Kota doria saris along with dress material of the latest fashion and style were the major attraction at a handloom exhibition organised by the Rajasthan Handloom Development Corporation in Delhi this past weekend. The exhibition registered a turnover of Rs.1.50 lakh.

Corporation chairperson and managing director Usha Sharma said here that the exhibition was organised to encourage the art of hand weaving after taking steps to prevent manufacture of “fake versions” of the famed Kota doria.

The Corporation has recently obtained a patent for Kota doria.

Ms. Sharma said the Corporation had started printing the brand name as part of the design on the saris.
