An all-white classic scarf with a hint of black pinstripes makes it the perfect accessory for a casual or dressed up look. The intricate weaving of the traditional motifs is an exclusive work done by the artisans of Kutch. The addition of tassels and miri border makes this scarf simple yet unique in its own way.
Kutch weaving, also known as Marwada style, is a 600 year old tradition from the district of Kutch in Gujarat. It is done using an extra-weft weaving technique, where a weft yarn is used in the warp of the loom. The weaving with extra weft creates distinctive designs with geometric patterns and intricately handwoven motifs. These motifs have been passed down through generations of artisan communities, and were originally made from local desi wools and were traditionally worn as veils. Artisans continue to design and produce this weaving technique for both the local market and international market.
