The nomadic pastoral community of Kutch Rabari’s started doing embroidery in their free
time. Their major inspiration for motifs and designs was nature and their surroundings
which symbolizes their wandering lives. Their embroidery has heavy embellishments which
consist of shapes like square, triangle, diamond and circle in various colors.
The inner rectangle field has another small rectangle and on the upper and bottom band it
has multiple borders of different designs. The compartments are filled with a highly stylized
geometric floral motif with a square base and triangular petals. It has embroidery with
maroon, green, beige and blue threads.
