Kutchi Costumes are unique and some of the embroidered are
very costly. The mirror work and embroidery work forms an
integral part of Kutchi Handicrafts irrespective of the community
or ethnic group to which they belong , however the workmanship
differs. In fact the various communities can be identified
by the pattern of handicrafts and dress or costumes they were.
For instance, the Garacia Jat women wear only red or black
chunis while Rabari women wear black open blouses or cholis
with odhnis to cover head.
In the rural areas women wear Chaniya choli during the whole
year, Chaniya choli's are of many designs and fashion. Typical
Kutchi costume is incomplete without 'Abha' or 'Kanjari'.
'Abha' is the name of the typical choli worn by women folk
and 'Kanjari' is a long blouse beautifully embroidered and
with mirror work. Most men in Kutch wear loose trousers,
a long-sleeved under-jacket, a short coat,. a plain or silk-bordered
cloth. Normally men prefer white clothes except the Muslims
who prefer colored clothes.
