The dots on this fabric are reminiscent of bor, a small, round fruit that grows well in Rajasthan's harsh, desert climate and is widely enjoyed there.  The design is worn by married women of the Kumhar (potters) and Chaudhury (owners of small landholdings) communities.  The dots are also said to represent the matkas, round vessels for storing drinking water, made by the Kumhars.
