A more subdued colour palette has been used in this bag - pale pink, white, light brown, olive green and a mauve - which all work together beautifully. Done by Ahir tribal women in chain and open-chain stitch. Coins and other metal adornments, zip closure and one internal zipped pocket. Understated, (compared to most Indian embroidery of the area) it is still eye-catching.
The Ahir is a community of cattle herders residing in Kutch. Their
embroidery is known for the use of mirrors in various size and shapes and the chain stitch and open stitch methods used.
