Khada Dupatta, also known as Upright Stole, is a traditional wedding dress worn by the Muslim brides of Hyderabad and Hyderabadi Khada Dupatta is a matter of pride for Hyderabadi Muslim Brides since the reign of Nizams.

This elaborate, royal looking wedding outfit is paired with a kurta (tunic), churidar (extra-long slim pants that gather at the ankles), and of course the matching dupatta (veil) which is 6 yards long.

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.
