Kutch embroidery

Kutch embroidery
Kutch embroidery was also called `Sindhi stitch' and could be used to add gaiety to any fabric


The oldest and the best known is the kathi named after the Kathi nomads who introduced it. Of the various other styles, heer is perhaps the richest.


It derives its named from the local flossy silk heer that is used to make it. Its long stitches and embossed designs form an all-over design covering the entire surface. Abhala is the mirror embroidery, probably the best known and the most widely used of all Indian embroidery.


Designs for this are prepared by fixing small round-shaped mirrors to the material with the help of the buttonhole stitch, the outline being sketched by hand.


A style of embroidery in Saurashtra known as mahajan has a special design called kajuri in which a satin shine and fine effects are attained by special manipulation of the satin and herring bone stitches with an interplay of glowing red and shades of violet.


They make these entire designs with cross-stitch
