Karachi Designer Kurta is the World’s Largest
A humongous kurta from fashion designer Deepak Perwani in Karachi has been given the certificate of being the world’s largest by Guinness Book of World Records. The kurta, large enough to be worn by a 175-foot tall person, was unveiled at a public ceremony. The kurta was measured last month by professional experts of SGS Pakistan, a local certification firm. The Guinness Book of World Records later certified the entry based on a rigorous documentation process. The kurta weighs 800 kg, is 101 feet tall and 59 feet 3 inches wide. Each sleeve is almost 57 feet long. It took a team of 50 hardworking professional tailors a period of 30 days to make the Kurta. The huge kurta is made of 800 yards of cotton blend fabric. According to Perwani, “the kurta is an intrinsic symbol of Pakistani attire, and (this garment) has successfully put it on the global map. A kurta represents the essence of what we are and defines our individuality in today’s world.” The world’s largest designer kurta will later be used to create smaller kurtas that will be donated to children’s homes run by the Edhi Foundation, a reputed NGO.
