Rajputi Poshak

Rajputi poshak, also known as Rajputi attire, is a traditional type of clothing worn by Rajput women in the state of Rajasthan, India. The poshak is typically worn on special occasions such as weddings, religious ceremonies, and festivals, and is considered to be a symbol of Rajput culture and heritage.

Rajputi poshak generally consists of a long skirt (lehenga) paired with a long tunic top (kanchli or kurti) and a dupatta, which is a long scarf worn over the head and shoulders. The kanchli is often heavily embroidered with gold or silver thread, and may be adorned with mirror work, beadwork, or sequins. The lehenga is similarly embroidered and is also decorated with intricate prints.

The poshak is traditionally made from fabrics such as silk and velvet, and is often embellished with intricate zari and zardosi work. The traditional colours are red, maroon, green, orange, and golden. The dupatta is usually made of thick silk, with golden zari border and can be worn in various styles depending on the occasion. It is considered as a symbol of Rajput pride and heritage and is often worn by Rajput women to celebrate their heritage and culture.
