1. What is a silk stole?
A stole is a seven to nine feet long band of fabric worn around the neck and is usually and traditionally made of silk. A Stole is remarkably similar to a formal or evening shawl but is much lighter and formal in comparison, giving the entire outfit an elegant look.

At iTokri, you can easily find a beautiful collection of stoles like pure silk stoles, Tussar silk weaves stoles, Stoles with Madhubani or Kalamkari art, and Stoles with Crochet Work Border and a bunch more.
2. What is the history of silk stoles?
The widespread use of silk stoles worldwide is because of their religious importance among Catholics. Stoles are also formally used at Graduation Ceremonies in the West to mark academic achievements, and the purple coloured stole symbolises Honour and Success.
In India, however, the story and popularity of silk stoles differ from the western viewpoint. Among all the various fabrics used in India, the most popular and preferred material had always been silk. This is because silk was always for those among the highest ranks in ancient traditional India, symbolising power and royalty. Since then, silk has always been accepted as a magnificent look and the most popular fabric used for making fashionable outfits, dupattas, bridal wears etc., in India.
There are a wide variety of silk types and fabrics in India, like Garad silk from West Bengal, Matka Silk that is produced mainly in Karnataka and Kashmir or the Mulberry Silk that is the purest form of silk extracted from silkworms, Tussar silk that is popularly used to make tussar silk banarasi and fabrics, etc. Thus it is no wonder why silk stoles are so much in demand as silk stoles are undeniably beautiful and comfortable to wear.
Stoles in Indian wear highly resemble scarves, dupattas or shawls, except stoles are a little shorter, lighter and formal in appearance and thus adds to the regal look of any outfit, adding a spoonful of elegance in the mix.
