Ahir embroidery is one of the beautiful embroideries.
Ahir is the community of Kutch's desert area. The traditional,
local word is ‘thasso’ used for Ahir embroidery. The word
suggests the confidence. Ahir works are large and colourful.
The craftswomen fill colourful mirrors surrounding by yellow
and white chain stich. The combination of these elements
create a vibrant effect. They embroider the designs like flowers, birds and animals.
Ahir embroidery is open to innovation. Traditional elements such
as abstract buttas with appealing colours used in authentic way.
The core Ahir values are respected as evident in the use of
specific stitches for specific functions. The small, round saankdi
or chain stitch to outline the buttas. Ahir, the community, follow the Krishna, the Gopa culture. Ahir women wear the full
embroidered skirt and kanjari. The unique embroidery of the
unique community, balance of tradition with modern concepts by hand work with only needle and threads.
