This Batik hand block printed Kurta is made from Cotton fabric.
Batik is one of Kutch’s many traditional textile crafts. There are twenty two batik artisan families working in the region. Batik designs are created when artisans paint or hand print paraffin wax on white fabric. Artisans use a collection of traditional and contemporary designed blocks to print flora, fauna, and geometric designs. When the fabric is dyed, the wax resists the colorful dyes and leaves designs surrounded by color. Today, Mundra is the Kutch’s centre for batik textiles.
VRDI (Vivekananda Rural Development Institute) was established in 1988 with the mission of skill enhancement of Kutchi artisans and develop craft enterprises. It undertakes training, production, market support, and capacity building of craft enterprises in Mandvi & Mundra.
