Spectacular Embroidery Art from the Patel Community of Kutch

 

On all my trips to the Kutch, I have only seen 4 such saris.

Motifs & Color that are similar to those from the North West Provinces – but more free flowing and less structured.

Very very rarely seen.

The black dye of the field is a mineral dye (iron filings) and is corrosive – which probably explains the lack of surviving pieces.
