  • 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.
