Tribal Textile Art of Kutch – the Bhuj Folk Art Museum

A self explanatory photo-essay showcasing the mirrorwork & embroidery of various tribes in the Kutch region of Gujarat India.

But first an introduction to the two lovely ladies from the Rabari & Jat tribes respectively – the creators of the textile art showcased below.

The images were taken on my phone camera on a quick visit to the Folk Art Museum in the city of Bhuj on a recent trip.

The genetic migrations exhibited by these tribes are as complex as they are interesting!

The wovensouls gallery has a large collection of similar antique and vintage textiles.
