Silk bracelets (with buttons) had been inspired in the traditional and heavy silver bracelets that Rabari women use. They are beautifully hand embroidered in the Rabari style - the unique technique to these nomads from the Kutch region of Gujarat (India) - by artisans from Kala Raksha organisation.

 

Ethnic styles express lifestyle. They are practiced by individuals whose heritage is rooted in community rather than land, and considered cultural property.

  • 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.
