Jat Embroidery



The Dhanetah Jat community of Kutch District has their own distinctive embroidery style. The striking feature of their embroidery is that the whole cloth is embroidered.

Clothes of orange, red, blue and yellow color are used for this work. Mirrors are embroidered on the cloth in a grid-like pattern. Covering of the space around the mirrors is done using the chain stitch and creeper stitch.

The Jat community in the Banni region of this district uses the pattern of medallions on the border of the clothes. They use red, white, yellow and golden colors in geometrical patterns. Images of dolls, birds and animals are created in an embossed manner, using interlace of buttonhole and chain stitch.
