This gorgeous double sided bag is hand embroidered by highly skilled woman artisans from the Kutch region, India. They are empowered by a NGO that strives to preserve the craft of traditional embroidery and focuses on holistic development of artisans from seven different ethnic communities.  

In many handmade crafts, an artisan creates a product designed by someone other than herself. This item is designed by the artisan who created it. Each piece is a personal creative expression. Patterns are never printed - they work directly on the fabric, just like their ancestors did. Besides that, artisans price their own work.  

These embroideries traditionally were never commercial. Village women embroidered to beautify, to create social wealth and to express their skill and affection. Different patterns articulated their cultural identity, as well as how they envisioned their worlds.

Made from eco-friendly materials: only natural fibres and wherever possible natural dyes. Every fabric is sourced within the Kutch region to maximize local production.

The 'flying butteress' shaped bag is traditionally used by a groom during wedding ceremonies filled with Areca nuts that were given to guests.
