The women of Gujarat have embroidered textiles for themselves and their families, using patterns and motifs that are inextricably linked with their identity.

ARTISANS’ explores the embroideries of Gujarat – Rabari, Suf, Khaarek, Paako, Jat and Mutava that use various elements of motif, stitch, pattern and most importantly a playful riot of colours which, carry a legacy of deep cultural practices. Traditionally, every young girl was taught to create her own wedding trousseau, popularly under the notion of making her dowry consisting of not just her dresses but decorative for her new home and family.

“Embroidery is a living art form in Gujarat. Take Pabiben Lakhman Rabari’s unique work. When the elders of the Dhebaria Rabari’s banned the making and wearing of embroidery, they invented ‘Hari Jari’, the machine application of readymade materials. An artisan-designer, Pabiben adapts current Dhebaria fashion for the contemporary market. Her ‘Pabi bag’ is a runaway success,” explains Radhi Parekh, the Director of ARTISANS.

Navratri is a major festival of Gujarat and with the onset of the season, under the aegis of ARTISANS, Pabiben will offer two workshops that will introduce people to the joys of the Rabari embroidery and appliqué-work techniques from Gujarat, this September, 2016.
