Kutch Artisan At Work

Kutch Artisan At Work

Located in the landlocked western recesses of the subcontinent, the Kutch region of Gujarat is home to lively folk fashion and vibrant aesthetics, both of which are characteristic of the local style of embroidery. It is the most notable of Indian embroideries, a Geographical Indication of the place it comes from. Note the embroidery the artisan holds in her hands. Striking foundation colour, silver sequins, and abundant florals. These are atypical, and could be observed on the artisan's ghagra as well, what with the mirrors glimmering in the pale light that surrounds her. The rest of her outfit are a good picture of what Kutch fashion is all about - brightly coloured gold-sequined choli, luscious dupatta, and lots of chunky silver jewellery.

She sits on the floor in the fullness of her own company, probably putting together the bestu varas gifts for her mother- and sisters-in-law. The just-right afternoon light illuminates her workroom. On the rustic straw mat she is sitting on are her sewing supplies spread about her. Her legs are crossed, with one knee raised to support her wrists as the fingers motion dexterously through the embroidery. Zoom in on her hands to admire the lifelike beauty of her long, artisan fingers. She eyes her work with love, pleased with the way the embroidery is turning out. Her lashes are lowered in the direction of her hands, their sublime thickness setting off the beauty of her long nose and full mouth.
