Kachchh Embroidery - Drawstring Bag - Dhebaria Rabari - Create

$98.95

A versatile drawstring bag that can be used open or cinched, worn over the shoulder or cross body. Featuring beautiful Dhebaria Rabari embroidery on handwoven cotton that is traditionally used by tribal women in Kachchh, India for jackets and utilitarian bags. With an inner zip pocket and hand block printed lining, this bag is the perfect accompaniment to your daily travels.

The embroidery of the Dhebaria Rabari (a tribal group living in Kachchh, India) is a distinct combination of stitch and appliqué. The aesthetic is immediately recognizable and unlike the work of any other group.

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.
