Product description :
This jacket depicts a local mythological story, handwoven with natural, hand-spun Patanwadi sheep wool of Kutch. Legend has it, Rishi Dhoramnath did a headstand on a beetle nut for 12 years atop Dhinodhar Hill in Kutch. Pleased by this, Shiva concentrated the energy of this intense tapasya in Dhoramnath's eyes and warned him that when he opens his eyes everything he sets his gaze on will be burned and destroyed. Dhoramnath carefully turned to the sea shore, his gaze blazed through the water and dried the sea. Thus Asia's largest grassland, Banni, was formed. * The centre Rishi motif shown in the jacket picture will be reversed in some of the product pieces, to depict the headstand.

Crafts of Kutch
The rich and diverse creative traditions of Kutch live at the intersection of cultures and communities. Kutchi motifs can be traced to the ancient Harappan civilization, yet craft is developing and growing with the innovative and entrepreneurial drive of spirited artists.

Making a Difference with
communities of kutch
For generations, Kutch has been home to nomadic communities whose traditional work of animal husbandry and craft have lent to forming a rich economic and cultural tapestry. Today, Kutch is a confluence of various art, craft, and music forms. Migration brought the distinctive elements of craft traditions from Sindh and Northern India to Kutch. These elements, inherited skill, and community identity are deeply imbedded in the region’s craft culture. Until three decades ago, each craft’s production process, from the sourcing of raw materials to the sale of finished products was practiced within the artisans’ communities.
