Cotton Drawstring Embroidered Bag
This naturally dyed bag was sourced from a wonderful Social Enterprise in Kutch, India conceived as a new model for development through handicrafts. This wonderful community of embroiderers work to preserve age-old traditions, and generate income via contemporary work, and this is an absolutely gorgeous example of their work.
The bag showcases traditional Rabari embroidery unique to the nomadic Rabaris. Essential to Rabari embroidery is the use of mirrors in a variety of shapes. Rabaris outline patterns in chain stitch, then decorate them with a regular sequence of mirrors and accent stitches, in a regular sequence of colors. Detailed beading and tassel work embellishes the bag.
