Craft Village

Rare Crafts of India

Disclaimer: Craft Workshops are a medium of self exploration, since art is self exploratory in nature. Craft Village does not interfere in medium and ways a master intends to teach, these workshops are solely on the discretion of Master Artist/Craft men. Art can not be taught in structured manner and each master has an individual style hence each workshop is different. To know more, kindly write us at info@craftvillage.org.in

5. Chamba Rumaal Embroidery, 26-27th May, 10 AM - 5PM, Fees; Rs 5000/-
Chamba Rumaal is one of the rarest Craft forms that use SATIN stitch, the uniqueness of this stitching is that it creates exact motif on both sides of the fabric, and it is impossible to determine the right side of the fabric if the selvedge is not considered. This Craft has championed its innovative techniques to reversible garments as it is the only embroidery form in the world that looks mirrored from both side and exactly same. Today it is practised by handful in the valleys of Chamba, a region in Himachal Pradesh. This craft originated, developed and flourished in the erstwhile state of Chamba in the 17 – 18 century AD. A translation of Pahari miniature paintings were embedded in fabrics through Kashidakari (embroidery), a celebrated feminine craft tradition of Himachal Pradesh, India. Learn from the legend who has given her 45-years in up-liftment of this Craft...and perhaps the only one in the world to receive the highest honour in form of Presidential Medal in this Craft. Witness History, recreate future...
