Winter Is Coming! Here’s Everything You Need To Know About Comforters And Dohars!

The winter season is a varied one in India, with different climatic conditions in every part of the country. It can get really chilly in certain regions while remaining perfectly pleasant in others. but one thing remains the same among all these climate zones – you definitely need a cosy blanket to keep the chill away. You may be thinking of upgrading your blankets and confused between buying a new dohar or comforter for the winter. to make things easier for your selection, we’ve curated a guide to understanding dohars and bed comforters.

What Is A Dohar?

A dohar is a quintessentially Indian piece of bed linen. It is made out of cotton that encases beaten cotton layers in a snug filling. The filling is kept in place with unique stitching so that it does not clump or become misshapen with use. Dohars are traditionally hand stitched for new couples by older women in the family, while smaller ones are made by grandmothers for babies and children. The earliest dohars in India were made with muslin as the encasing cover, for royal and wealthy families. Through the ages, muslin was replaced by cotton. Dohars normally feature typical ethnic and criss-cross patterns, though modern ones may feature floral and geometric motifs, too.

Though a dohar is usually used in the winter, it does find applications all through the year. At Spaces, we offer delightful 100% Cotton dohar collections like the Earthy Tones and Cambric for adults, and a wide kids’ range in single sizes.

What Is A Comforter?

A bed comforter is quite like the dohar except in one key aspect: the filling. Where a dohar boasts of an exclusively cotton filling, a comforter may be padded thickly with wool, silk-based fibres, synthetic padding or even downy feathers. Where multiple layers of beaten cotton ensure warmth in a dohar, the type of filling inside the comforter ensures how much warmth it provides.  Another point of difference is that the comforter is often thicker and fluffier than a dohar

A comforter set has more insulating properties than a dohar, and some people may not be comfortable using them in warm weather. Usually, comforters are best for the winter season – they trap body heat inside and keep you cosy and warm even on the coldest night. If you must use a comforter during warmer seasons, you can do so with the air-conditioning on.

Spaces has the widest range of comforter sets for you to choose from. Pick from our Bamboo Charcoal, Organic Cotton, Geostance, and Anti-Viral collections, among others.
