Kharad weaving of Kachchh

Earlier, the kings and ministers were fond of Kharad because of their very unique look, strength, and durability. Amazingly, a hand-spun wool kharad easily lasts up to 100 years. But now only 18 families from Kutch still practice it. The reason is many of the local linkages have completely broken and local communities no longer buy kharad products.
