Kathiawar Embroidery

Mirrors and bright colors are the specialty of Kathiawar Embroidery originating from Gujarat. Satin and khaddar are the mostly widely used fabrics.

The base fabric is usually colored in blue, yellow, red, white, turquoise or green. Silk floss and colorful cotton threads are used for the embroidery. It even contains appliqué and beadworks in the items meant for daily use.

Cloths exhibiting the Kathiawar embroidery are used on wall panels, bags, jackets, ‘cholis’ (traditional blouses) and ‘ghagras’ (traditional skirts).
