There are 7 types of embroideries done in kutch- Jat, Soof, Kharek, Rabari, Ahir, Pakko and Mutva.
Jats are pastoral communities who migrated from western Asia to India centuries ago. The Jat-Garasia and Jat Fakirani are done by the two communities, they generally use cross stitch embroidery to cover the whole of fabric in a pre-planned geometric design. The embroidery is beautifully embellished with mirrors of small size adopting “satin stitch with radiating circles of a couched stitch in it.
