Dupatta A dupatta is a long scarf that is essential to many Indian and Pakistani women's suits. Some "dupatta suits" include the salwar kameez, the trouser suit, and the kurta. A salwar kameez is incomplete without a dupatta. A dupatta generally completes the ensemble.

Fabric in Dupatta
The Indian salwar dupattas are available in different ranges depending upon the fabric used. The material for the dupatta varies according to the suit: cotton, georgette, silk, chiffon, and more.

Indian dupatta has a lot of significance. The use of the dupatta has definitely undergone a metamorphosis over time. Women wear it over the head as a mark of respect while going to worship and talking to the elders. Today, this has became a part of fashion as well. Today, the dupatta is a stylish accessory that can be worn over one shoulder or draped around the chest and over both shoulders. As a fashion garment, Indian salwar dupatta is an attractive accessory that looks graceful and breaks the monotony of the dress.

A plain silken or cotton salwar kameez set ensemble can look simple and elegant when worn with a heavily embroidered or sequined Indian dupatta decorated with a beautiful border. It is available in almost all the colors and in different patterns like embroidered, plain, zardosi work, printed and many other forms. Another recent trend is the short dupatta often seen with kurtas and Indo-Western clothing. Essentially, the dupatta is often treated as an accessory in current urban fashion. Nevertheless, the dupatta remains an integral part of Indian clothing and Pakistani clothing.
