1628 Rabari Ludhi Wedding Shawl Tie-dye & Embroidery 11 florets

RABARI Wedding Ludhi or Lugadi

Large desert shawl used by gypsy tribals of Kutch. Made of heavy hand spun wool. After weaving the fabric on a narrow loom, the piece is tied and dyed to create patterns of dots on two separate pieces as mirror images. These are then attached at the center using the typical embroidery of the region that also uses mirrowork.

This is from the Vagad Rabari group.

Estimated to be from 1970s with some embellishments added later

Good condition overall but may have minor stains/repairs/minor holes as these are textiles that have hearty lives with their owners.

Has 11 florets

Note also the use of multiple colors in the bordering signalling Debariya Rabari influence

108 x 288 cm



This item has spent a lifetime being used for the purpose of its creation with the original artist/user. Signs of this life lived heartily may be present on the piece in the form of stains, thread loss, loose threads, holes, tears, color run and other imperfections. Therefore the condition must be assumed to be “not” perfect. More photos of such imperfections will be provided on request.
