Nestled against the great Northwestern desert, Gujarat is the starting point of the Indian west coast. It is the state of Kutch and Gir - thick marshes and matchless white deserts, and the lush rainforests that is the home of the virile Indian lion. Despite being one of the most industrialised and agriculturally developed states in the country, Gujarat has retained the charm of the ancient Indian world in terms of, say, fashion and way of life, of which the dolls you see on this page are the very picture.
They belong to a well-heeled Gujarati farming family. He is wearing the traditional balloon-trousers of the menfolk, with a flowing long-sleeved shirt. Made from pure homegrown cotton, such an attire is best suited to the warm, temperate climate of the region. On his head is a bright yellow turban and a chunky silver coil around his neck, a popular item of jewellery with the men. The close-fitted jooties and the imposing moustache complete the image of the patriarch.
His wife is clad in a dark green saree dyed bandhani style, a fashionable tie-dye method perfected in the region. She has drawn the endpiece of her saree over her head in the presence of her husband, from beneath which one could make out the ample gold on her person. A baby dressed exactly like the father motions in her lap.
