A single dohar, double the comfort
It wraps itself around you like a warm hug, making it difficult for you to get out of bed! A dohar is an essential part of your bedroom, and specifically, your bed.
What is a dohar?
A ‘dohar’ is a shortened word derived from the Hindi word ‘Doharana’, which means a thin blanket. A dohar is an Indian blanket, traditionally woven using thin cotton as a filling and covered on both sides using soft mulmul (muslin cloth). It has its origins in the bedrooms of Indian kings and queens, since muslin was too expensive and exclusive for commoners to own. Dohars are still woven by hand in many parts of North India and the desert areas of Gujarat. It is an essential piece of bedding for infants and toddlers in the cold regions of India.
The word ‘dohar’ also refers to layering. In the context of bed linen, it simply means a type of blanket used to layer the skin in cool weather, or during windy nights.
Lately, premium bed linen brands like Spaces have rolled out a range of single dohars. These are made of 100% cotton and adhere to the highest standards of quality. They are great for your personal use, and are a wonderful gifting option for a loved one as well. They are extremely special as gifting options, since they evoke a sense of nostalgia for most people. Plus, they look really pretty and are easy to clean and use as well.
What is a Single Dohar?
As the term implies, a single dohar is made for use by one person, especially on a single bed. Its size is customised for use by one person on a standard sized single bed. However, the humble Indian dohar is today revived by leading brands in bed furnishings, like Spaces. They offer single dohars online in a variety of designs and patterns, and the brand even has a special kids’ range. You can pick single dohars online made of 100% cotton – these are softer and less stiff than traditional dohars. In fact, single dohars are well suited for children’s bedrooms and also for those who live alone in their bedrooms or homes. They are especially comforting for senior citizens and invalids who are accustomed to using hand woven dohars at home.
What is the size of a Single Dohar?
Though a single dohar is designed for use by one person, they are by no means small in size. Most single dohars online are large enough to cover the user’s body, head and feet adequately. They mould to the contours of your body and give you a comfortable, warm night’s sleep. Standard single dohars online have dimensions of 135 cm x 220 cm and weigh about 500 gm. They can be folded and stored at the foot of your bed after use. A really light single dohar may also be tucked into a small fold and stored away in a suitcase after use, or when travelling.
How to wash a single dohar
Most single dohars are washable in your home washing machine. Unless the manufacturer specifically mentions so, it is best to avoid dry cleaning the dohar. You can wash the single dohar in the washing machine in cold or cool water, on a low tumble and spin cycle. Avoid adding bleach to the wash, or washing the dohar with other clothes. Dry the dohar in shade or extremely mild sunlight if you want to give it a good airing. You may even iron the dohar using low heat.
If you are unsure about how to wash the dohar you wish to buy, you can ask your questions to the manufacturer online.
