Mutwa Embroidery of Gujarat

IMAGE GALLERY KEYWORDS YOUR VIEWS

This embroidery is done by the Mutwa subgroup of the Maldhari community. The women are highly skilled and they specialize in single-thread embroidery. They create geometric designs using a combination of stitched like Paako, suf and ari along with mirrors and create an aura with the running back stitch which is usually in white. They use tie-and-dye surface to complement their embroidery. In olden times, the Mutwas were commissioned by royals and elites to produce embroidered textiles.
