Gujarati Embroidery

For those interested in Indian embroidery,here is a video on embroidery of Gujarat, from a place called Bhujodi .
The video is approx 10 minutes long and shows the close up of various embroidered items. Do listen to the conversation and you'll learn a lot about the embroidery and culture of Kutch in Gujarat . In those regions,to get a good husband for self or for the daughter, one needs to embroider a really good dress piece !! Thank god,I got one without much struggle ;)

Here's the video -do not miss those dresses and that cradle cloth- those are fabulous!!



Thanks to Dawn Delvechhio for this video.

Enjoy,
Love,luck and sunshine
Deepa
