By purchasing this bag you will contribute to the growth of Women artisans of Gujarat. More about Kutch Embroidery: Kutch, situated in the border region of Gujarat state is a drought-prone area which is famous across the world for the 'mirror work' embroidery done by the native women. Embroidery, of various kinds, are part of their traditional dresses, turbans, shawls and other accessories. Exclusive embroideries are done during marriages as part of the wealth given for the bride. In Kutch, the embroidery is always done by the women. Specific stitches are done in a defined order and sequence to create a particular style of embroidery. Various tribes/communities of Kutch have their own styles of embroidery. They can, infact, identify the particular sub-community and social status of a person from the embroidery on their clothes! Some styles that are very popular are paako, ahir, suf, khaarek, rabari, garasia jat and mutava. The motifs and patterns are not traced - they are directly transferred from the imagination of the artisan to sticthes on the cloth!!
Social Impact –At Craftsvilla we are dedicated to supporting the artisans, who have preserved our rich and diverse heritage and culture and are now finding it difficult to sustain it. We support them by providing them employment and bringing to the world their priceless art in the form of our products. Often we have been able to revive a form of art dying out, due to lack of funds and provide a source of income to countless families. Taking this one step further we have also established a Craftsvilla fund in support of these artisans.
