This piece is amazing having been made completely by hand using mainly the technique of applique.  The applied images have been cut from cloth that have been dyed and block printed using vegetable dyes and embroidery stitches and quilting then added for detail.

The artisans of Kutch first experimented with this more personal narrative form of embroidery for two exhibitions following the Indian earthquake of 2001. The pieces are not seen as a substitute for traditional art, but an addition to it, valued in a very different way, the work holding a place of pride in the hearts and minds of the artists.  Exploring the narrative genre and using applique, embroidery and quilting, this unique piece journeys from the decorative to the expressive with the intention of visually describing their rich culture and village life.  Made in Kutch by artists expert in the art of traditional Indian Textiles, many have been named using fine chain stitch.  To read more about the makers please visit our Makers Page.
