Collection: Bhujodi Cotton Sarees

Bhujodi is home of the Vankars (Weavers) of Kutch, the Meghwal community who had migrated from Rajasthan about 500 years ago to weave woolen veils and coarse woolen blankets for the shepherd or the Rabari community.  With specific colour preference, the Ahirs- the local farming community and the Rabaris were the only clientele for the Bhujodi weavers. The Rabaris preferred black and white undyed yarn fabric and the Ahirs went for brighter hues.

Kala cotton is indigenous to Kachchh and by default organic, as the farmers do not use any pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. It is a purely rain fed crop that has a high tolerance for both disease and pests, and requires minimal investment. It is both resilient and resurgent in the face of stressful land conditions.

It was not until the devastating earthquake of Bhuj in 2001 that shook everything from livelihood, land and beyond did the local and the central government make extensive efforts to revive the region’s rich cultural textile heritage. As time passed, exhibitions, fairs and designer collaborations flooded the region, making it an internationally prominent craft and textile destination.
