Tribal Textile Art of Kutch - the Bhuj Folk Art Museum

A self explanatory photo-essay showcasing the mirrorwork & embroidery of various tribes in the Kutch region of Gujarat India. But first an introduction to the two lovely ladies from the Rabari & Jat tribes respectively - the creators of the textile art showcased below. The images were taken on my phone camera on a quick visit to the Folk Art Museum in the city of Bhuj on a recent trip. [slideshow] The genetic migrations exhibited by these tribes are as complex as they are interesting! The wovensouls gallery has a large collection of similar antique and vintage textiles. jm July 2012
