Distinct to the Kutch district of Gujarat, India, this embroidery is one of the most popular traditional handicraft and textile signature art. This embroidery is usually carried out on cotton, in the form of a net using cotton or silk threads. The types of stitches adopted are “square chain, double buttonhole, pattern darning, running stitch, satin and straight stitches”. The signature effect of the colorful embroidery sparkles when small mirrors called abhla are sewn over the geometrically shaped designs. The kutch embroidery handloom cotton fabrics are vibrantly colourful with exquisite designs and exotic fancy embroideries. This embroidery has recently been used in a lot of indo-western wear, where kutch-embroidered tops are being worn over jeans regularly.
