A Dupatta Is..., written by Marzieh Abbas and vividly brought to life by the artwork of Anu Chouhan, is a loving and lyrical ode to the dupatta.

A dupatta is so much more than a beautiful piece of fabric.

A dupatta is sound--swooshing and swashing like a superhero cape.

A dupatta is scent--cinnamon and cardamom, crushed coriander and peppermint oil.

A dupatta is fun--playing peekaboo and building cushion forts with dupatta canopies.

Dupattas--shawls traditionally worn by women in various cultures of South Asia--are beautiful and colorful of course, but they're also fun, functional, and carry the sounds and smells of family and identity.
