The natural resources required for Kharad Craft are wool and vegetable colors. Kachchh had a strong tradition of animal husbandry. The pastoral communities kept large herds of camels and cattle like goats or sheep. Originally Kharad was made from goat and camel hair wool. The Maldharis and Rabaris (pastoral communities) shear the hair from camels and goats. This was then given to the hand-spinners who specialized in making wool out of goat and camel hair.
