Bhujodi Meghwal Artisan-Designer

Bhujodi Ikat Silk Stole: Natural Iron Grey and Sappanwood

Rs. 3,410.00

This shawl is hand woven in Bhujodi, the first village to be conferred a Geographical Indicator (GI) in India.

This innovative design is not just woven, but designed by a master weaver for a traditional 4-shaft pit loom. It has unbleached cotton on the warp, and ikat tussar silk on the weft, with extra-weft designs picked on the borders. The colours are natural dyed iron-black; and red from the oriental lac insect (Kerria Lacca).

Meghwal Weavers of Kutch in western India, have woven traditional shawls for nomadic Rabari shephards, for 800 years. This symbiotic relationship continues today.

Today a new cadre of Artisan-Designer-Entrepreneur is emerging, from a revolutionary movement which empowers makers through design education. While they preserve the Bhujodi identity, and its distinct design vocabulary, they innovate with new materials, colours, and techniques. This natural-dye ikat scarf represents a high point in Artisan-Design.

The entire family is involved with the process. This shawl is finished with a bound warp fringe of short tassels, crafted by the young women in the family.
