Chaniya Cholis have been present in India since ages now. But this traditional dress of Gujarati women is usually worn in India only during the festival of Navratri when the beautiful women of Gujarat get all decked up in their best jewelry coupled with the Chaniya Choli. The sari is too restrictive a dress for the kind of movements that the "Garba" - a cultural Gujarati dance performed during the festival of Navratri demands. The "Garba" is performed with sticks and also with hands and is a delight to watch.
There was a time when Chaniya Cholis were worn only during the nine days of the festival of Navratri. But now, the garment is in demand all around the year as women wear it during wedding and also for many different cultural functions. Being the traditional garment of a lot of people living in Kutch, Gujarat and Rajasthan, the Chaniya Choli is a very popular outfit in the western region of India. A lot of people love buying traditional garments for fancy dress parties and also for college as well as school functions.
