Colors of Kutch

The colors of Kutch are not only evident in the landscaping this trip, but also in the artisan work we’ve encountered. Many of the artisans we have been meeting with have been practicing with new dye techniques and vegetable dyes and the scarfs and other items we are designing and ordering are from this new color palette. As I went to visit one of my friends he told me, in describing the new work, that they are becoming more “civilized.” To them that means being able to produce the same thing more than once. Yea- it has taken years to get here. The question and challenge becomes how to become more “civilized” with keeping the integrity of the artisans goods and art of the region. It seems that that we are able to explain that well as we work towards common goals.
