There is no denying that every Bengali is in awe of the fascinating laal paar and sada saree. We have all been watching our mothers and grandmothers sporting them during the festivities like religious occasions, the oh-so mesmerizing sindoorkhela on Bijoya Dashami, or even during special events, such as weddings or the thread ceremony. If you are a fan of this inherent love of Bengalis, you can’t miss out on what we have in store for you at Dora.

Collections to enthrall and restore the old charm
Let me tell you a story before narrating the collections. A friend of mine staying in the US got mad when she found her wardrobe barren while looking for Bengali laal paar saree to participate in the Dashami celebrations of which the sindoorkhela was ‘the most’ special attraction. She somehow managed to get one from her friend and let the occasion pass with the enjoyment and hullabaloo. But the very next day, I got a call from her and before I could greet her with “SubhoBijoya” she urged me to send her a few from our collections. The red border and the white body are an embodiment of Bengal cotton sarees in Kolkata. I sent her a few and seeing them she was elated!
For the rest of you in Kolkata, are looking forward to some alternative pieces in this theme, here’s what you may add to your closet from our Hand Block Print Collection.
The Amar Uma saree celebrates the symbol of Shakti that empowers us to fight to through all odds. It celebrates the Goddess ‘Uma’– that’s present in every girland the block print on dhonekhali symbolizes the power within her. This would be our first choice when it comes to Lal Paar Sada Saree – a bit different but very us!
The ultimate machey bhaatey Bangali is now out of the plate and into your sarees. With hand block fish prints all over a soft Begumpur cotton, our Fish Fish saree is the perfect attire to sport even on a hot and sultry day.
The last one of the lot has to be an audience favourite! I have lost the count of enquiries we received after this saree was launched. We got into the much-loved Money Heist trend and came up with the combination of Bella ciao and Dali mask screen print on mul cotton sarees. Are you ready to drape one?
You have worn the tape frock as a child so many times, especially on hot summer days. Now, get back the same essence in the Tape Jama Begumpur Cotton Saree reminiscent of your childhood days.

The beauty of a khesh saree lies in the irregularity and asymmetry of the weaves. This handloom cotton saree in off-white gets a new lease of life with kantha stitch on the body and the pallu extensively. One of the oldest and sustainable weaving techniques, khesh reminds you of what magic the weavers can create to lend it uniqueness.
