Kachchh Embroidery - Clutch - Dhanetah Jat - Merlot

$49.95

This pouch makes a great clutch bag, an art supply organizer, or a keeper of special items. Every piece is a little work of art!

Dhanetah Jat women design and produce exquisite, labour-intensive embroidery. The power of Jat embroidery comes largely from the closely stitched patterns that completely cover the cloth. They take pride in the fact that their "stitches outlive the cloth on which they’re sewn."

These embroideries bring the richness of desert cultures into your hands — heirlooms for the future. Each embroidery is a unique expression of the woman who made it. No two are the same.

Size is approx. 4" x 8"

Features: Double-sided intricate traditional embroidery, zipper closure along top, and inner zip pocket.

Note: Each embroidery piece is one of a kind.

*Embroidery varies - the pattern may differ slightly from the unique piece in the image shown.

The language of stitches builds within a community over hundreds of years. It is a source of identity that is transferred from one generation to the next. It is learned in the same way a spoken language is learned; with children sitting beside the adults. In an oral culture the stitched language records everything of importance from the epic to the personal.

Maiwa works with embroiderers through many co-operative structures within India. The women embroider, design, market and innovate as entrepreneur artisans. The goal is financial self-determination and empowerment through education and a clear sense of the value of their work.
