Farshi Pajama was inspired from the floor covering gowns of british women. It used to take 9-15 yards of expensive and fine cloth to get the typical flare of the pajama. ‘Gharara’ evolved to become floor length dress along with the kurta or a long shirt, the dupatta or the long stole. Pajama was made up of atlas or etles silk which was imported from China. The fabric was so expensive as normal people can’t afford it. In 1980’s it was given a modern contemporary touch by various fashion designers and worn by bollywood stars for period roles in films like Umrao Jaan and Shatranj ke Khiladi then also they failed to revived it and this elegant piece of clothing lost popularity in India while expensive fabric and flare length was the main factor behind it. Reducing the making cost still maintaining its charm can work as key element for regaining its popularity among common people
