History of Hyderabadi Khada Dupatta:

In the early 17th century, Mughal Empress Noor Jehan invited Turkish and Persian craftsmen to craft a royal dress, particularly only for family members of Mughal royal ladies. But later, when Nizam-ul-Mulk, Mughal governor declared his self-government over Deccan Suba (Hyderabad.), the begums of Nizam’s family adopted the Mughal’s style and creatively modified it to form the Khada Dupatta, which would be woven on silk cloth with pure gold and silver threads, popularly known as Zardozi embroidery.

Draping style of  Hyderabadi Khada Dupatta:

The draping of dupatta is done by tucking the top part of the middle of dupatta into the back of churidar. Then, it is folded into pleats like an accordion at both the ends.

Draping style of the Hyderabadi Khada Dupatta is completely unique. Watch the video above to learn its draping style. Celebrity like, Sania Mirza, too wore this traditional wedding outfit on her wedding.
