Traditionally a cattle breeding tribe, whenever the men would set out for cattle grazing, the women and small children would sit with needle and thread to do embroidery work, the little ones being as young as eight years old. This, over time gave them extraordinary skills to do extremely fine and minute embroidery on their clothes.
Today articles for embroidery include festival blouses called ‘Kanchali’, the wedding trousseau of the bride to be, the groom’s wedding wear, curtains and other household items.
There are different sub-groups within the population, each with their own skill or expertise in a particular style of Kutchi embroidery. The Rabaris are good at decorative floral designs, panels, geometrical images, in the chain stitch with mirror work scattered in between. The Ahirs are supposed to be superior to the Rabaris in chain stitch, their work being even more exquisite. Their designs are different though.
There is a style of embroidery known as Hurmitch. This is supposed to be inspired from the thorny Bavaliya or Acacia tree. The theme is totally disconnected interweaving stitches arranged into various geometric patterns. In the hurmitch embroidered fabrics, the reverse surface of the fabric contrasts very much with the front.
