Kutch Embroidery

Kutch Embroidery is mostly influenced by romantic motifs as well as patterns of human figurines in dancing poses and dancing peacocks too. The history of the Kutch Embroidery is traced to the 16th and 17th centuries when people migrated from the countries such as Greece, Germany, Iran, and Iraq to Gujarat. It is also said that cobblers known as Mochis were trained in this art form by the Muslim Sufi saints of Sindh.
