Kutch in Gujarat is the largest district in India, It comprises 10 talukas and accounts for 24% of the total land area of the state. Its geography is characterised by an extreme ecological divide.
Embroidery is integral to the Kutchi cultural identity, and this elegant craft is passed on from generation to generation by Kutch’s ethnic communities.
Kutch is distict of communities coming from India and most of them are assosiative with us.
With the depletion of natural resources and growing urbanisation, the embroidering communities were forced to find alternative ways of income in times of drought.
The Gujarat State Handicraft Development Corporation also wanted to know about the ground realities of embroidery artisans and requested a Development Support Organisation to help them in this process.
