A Tradition Discovered.
A Culture Unravelled.
A desert by definition, for those who value the beauty of culture, Rann of Kutch is a vast ocean of cultural beauty. With a glorious past captured in its traditions this is a culture that not only preserves its essence but also celebrates it.
Each village has its unique craft that has been mastered over centuries by the talented and uniquely artistic people of Kutch. Machine-made works of art pale in comparison to the exquisite craftsmanship of the Kutchi women who work with meticulous detail and astonishing accuracy. The variety of crafts range from weaving, patchwork, block printing, bandhani, tie-and-dye, rogan-art and other ethnic styles of embroidery, to pottery, wood-carving, metal-crafts and shell-work.
Beautifully organized by the Department of Gujarat Tourism, Rann Utsav is truly a festival that celebrates the varied art forms and handicrafts arising from different parts of Kutch.
