This Tukari (Patch) Skirt is a delightful blend of both skills, meaningful arrangement of pieces, and fine and precise needle-work. It is composed of small pieces of various sizes as also variously dyed, printed and designed but these are not old worn out rags irregular in shapes. Most of them are rectangular – large or just squarish, and are taken from fresh lengths of rayon fabric. Further, such lengths are properly coloured using various dying methods, such as mono-colour dye, batik dye, and printed with both, colourful patterns and various mono-colour motifs. Not casually, different pieces are so arranged that on one hand they greatly contribute to the unity of the whole so much so that it looks like a piece crafted out of a single length, and on the other, each piece stands for its own identity affording to those around delightful contrast. What could otherwise look odd untwisted ropes used for defining joints between each two pieces attribute to the piece the real magic.

Though now one of the most loved contemporary fashions this tukari skirt made of pieces stitched together inherits its ethnicity and antiqueness from one of India’s early costume traditions. The earliest example of a pieced costume is reported from the life of Buddha who was presented by a poor disciple a chadara – sheet, composed of old rags. It was not its cost the Buddha out of respect for this disciple’s sentiments as also for his massive labour and talent that transformed the poorest of the rags into a magnificent wear for the Great Master that since onwards the Buddhism accepted a pieced chadara as one of its most venerated objects.

Later, the Buddhism followed the cult of pieced wears as one of its most sacred practices and to utilise old wears is still one of Buddhism’s golden principles. Whenever a Buddhist teacher passes away his last wear is pieced and divided among his disciples each using his share as his teacher’s blessings and composing with it a proper wear considered most sacred. Later, another sectarian Master Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism, is known to have in his use a tukari chadara. Patch-work, a highly skilled art requiring finest needle-work, is almost another version of pieced costumes.   

This description by Prof. P.C. Jain and Dr Daljeet. Prof. Jain specializes on the aesthetics of ancient India. Dr Daljeet is the chief curator of the Visual Arts Gallery at the National Museum of India, New Delhi. They have both collaborated on numerous books on Indian art and culture.

  • Buy it for the style. The patches themselves from one skirt to another are completely different. The seams and the the way they patch are the only thing that look like the same. I bought the beige and although it is different it is just as attractive. The dye makes the patterns look very uniform. Most of my patterns are a shades of blue and pink.It looks antiqued with the dye. I am 5'3 and expected it to be long. But this skirt makes it easy to adjust. Just fold down the waist or hem up the bottom tier. I am glad I bought it. I wish I could post a photo.

  • I love this skirt, however, being a short 5'1 individual it is wayyyyy too big for me... I will probably end up giving it away. If you are a shorter woman this might be a waste of money, it was for me. If you are a taller women then I would highly recommend this skirt. It is very well made and is GORGEOUS.

I have always enjoyed browsing through the website. I was recently in south India, and was amazed to note that the bronze statues made in Kumbakonam and Thanjavur had similar pricing as Exotic India.
Heramba, USA
Thank you very much for your services. I ordered a Dhanvantari Deity from this site and it came quickly and in good condition. Now Sri Dhanvantari ji is worshipped regularly before seeing each client and in the offering of our medicinal products. Thanks again.
