THE ORIGIN OF GHARCHOLA

Originating from the Kutch region of Gujarat, Gharcholas have been used for years in Gujarati weddings. Khambat was a very popular port and centre of trade in India, till about 16th century. Merchants from all over the world visited this important trading centre that was also famous for silk manufacturing. The weaving of Gharcholas is traced back to this port city.A sub-set of Bandhani (Indian tie and dye art), Gharchola was earliermade by traditional weavers and Bandhani workers. The dying process of Gharchola is historically associated with Bhuj, as it’s believed that the water quality of Bhuj is excellent for producing the rich red colours of Gharcholas.

WHAT DOES GHARCHOLA MEAN?

WHAT DOES GHARCHOLA MEAN?

Ghar+Chola – made of two words ‘ghar’ (home) and ‘chola’ (cape/clothing)– the word gharchola literally translates to ‘home apparel’ or the outfit worn at home. However, the contextual meaning of the word is more complex. Here ‘Ghar’ refers to the bride’s new home, her husband’s home. And, ‘Chola’ contextually means her wedding costume. The new bride enters her marital home wearing a Gharchola on her head and shoulders – implying she comes with everyone’s blessings and good wishes.

This stands especially true in the context of the Indian marriages, where a bride is traditionally considered the honour and grace of the family she marries into. Also, with marriage, the bride becomes an integral part of her new family – her security and respect, the new family’s responsibility.There are many cultural practices and religious/ ritualistic symbols associated with this integral aspect of Indian society. Gharchola is one of them! This auspicious wedding staple from the Indian states of Gujarat and Rajasthan has been used since years with this beautiful thought behind it.
