Kachchh Embroidery - Quilted Tote Bag - Dhebaria Rabari - Kindly

$119.95

A very useful quilted cotton tote bag to bring everywhere with you! Featuring beautiful wrap-around Dhebaria Rabari embroidery. Complete with zip closure and three pockets to organize your essentials.

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.

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.

Features: 

  • Wrap-around traditional embroidery on quilted cotton bag
  • Zip closure
  • Outer zip pocket
  • Inner zip pocket & pouch pocket

Note: This embroidery piece is one of a kind.

*Embroidery varies - you will receive one of the three pieces shown in the last image.

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.
