Wrap up in elegance with this exquisitely hand woven and hand embroidered shawl in Merino wool. The hand applique & embroidery on this shawl has been done by a craftswoman from the Dhebariya Rabari community. This is a skill unique to their community. This work had been discontinued by them due to socio-economic pressures, making this a very rare piece. This creation brings together the artisanal work of 3 different cultural communities in Kutch – The Weaver community, Tie & Dye artists and the embroidery craftswomen. This unique creation symbolizes a centuries old symbiotic relationship between different cultural communities of Kutch.
Kutch Craft Collective is a collaborative platform of 5 organizations from Kutch and was formed to revive the old crafts of Kutch, while creating livelihood opportunities for the artisan families. Amongst the 5 organizations of KCC, Qasab Kutch Craftswomen Producer Co. Ltd. is an artisanal cooperative of more than 1500 artisans from across 11 ethnic communities settled in Kutch. Peepul Tree is proud to join hands with KCC in presenting Kutch 's most authentic art and craft forms.
