A dupatta is a shawl-like scarf, traditionally and since many centuries worn by women from India and surroundings.
A dupatta can be worn as shawl, but u can also be used to cover the head or face, as sign of humbleness or to find protection from the burning sun.
In modern society, a dupatta is mostly used as accessory when wearing traditional clothing.
