  • CRAFT TECHNIQUE: Kutch Embroidery (Rabari)

     

    RABARI embroidery is unique to the nomadic Rabaris and to it is essential the use of mirrors in a variety of shapes. Rabaris outline patterns in chain stitch and then decorate them with a regular sequence of mirrors and accent stitches, in a regular sequence of colors. The style is ever evolving, and in abstract motifs Rabari women depict their changing world.

     

    KALA RAKSHA is a grassroots social enterprise committed to documenting and promoting existing traditions of art and craft of Kutch region in north Gujarat, India. The Trust maintains a collection of heirloom textiles that functions as a resource base for artisans to study and create exquisite contemporary work.
