This leather bag has been lovingly handcrafted by artisans from Kutch, Gujrat. Rich in detail, this product is an outcome of age-old techniques of slicing, hand stitching, punching and braiding. Endowed with embroidery and engraving skills, Kutch artisans have overtime added a new dimension to leather products, beautifying them with hand embroidery, embossing or engravings. Their trademark cuts and embroidery styles stand out from the crowd. The Dalit Meghwals of Rajasthan migrated to Kutch, bringing this artful leather craft with them. The trade was kept alive by a partnership with nomadic pastoralist Maldharis. When a Maldhari cattle died, the Meghwals converted the raw hides into leather. The work was tough, taking 18 labor-intensive days to treat and wash the hide. By recycling the dead cattle, the Meghwals gave new life to waste, transforming it into a product of utility. The Meghwals’ close relationship with the Maldharis resulted in a remarkable fusion of cultural customs which can be seen in the shared styles of dress and embroidery traditions of the various communities in the region. Social barriers nearly led to the extinction of this craft. Most of the artisans quit, looking for other forms of employment. Today only 20-25 artisans practice leather craft in Kutch, taking immense pride in their skills and choosing to work with traditional handmade techniques alone.
