Dokhona is traditional dress of the Bodo women which is one-piece garment. It is wrapped around a body in a unique style and has generous look of two-piece wear. A Dokhona covers the whole body from chest to the legs by wrapping one round at a time over the waist. The designs are attribution of the natural flower-pattern and thus the Bodo community endorses their eclectic living hood.
