Framed hand embroidered vintage Kutch fabric.

This beautiful piece of green silk fabric—a cut-off of a vintage blouse—is hand-embroidered with wool threads in multiple vivid colors. It is finished off with finely stitched yellow, white, and blue beading. The delicate embroidery on the fabric is typical of the Kutch district of Gujarat, India, whose rich handicraft and textile tradition dates back to the 16th century.

Kutch embroidery comes in many different varieties, with every community and region having its own distinct style. Women are at the helm of this trade, and embroidery skills tend to be transferred intergenerationally from mothers to daughters. Beyond their decorative function, Kutch embroideries are also steeped in personal symbolism and meaning. The intricate embroidered pattern on each piece, as well as the placement of embellishments such as mirrors, beads, and shells, communicates the unique life circumstances of both the maker and the intended wearer.

We found this vintage blouse piece in Jaipur, the Pink City. Framed, it becomes a striking decorative artwork and a piece of India within your home.
