This ghagara and choli is embroidered with mochi and kuchhi embroidery respectively. The kuchhi embroidery is further embellished with mirror work.
Bhuj became the main centre of mochi embroidery in the 19th century. It received immense patronage from the Maharaos of Kutch. The royalty engaged the mochi embroiderers in making gifts for their British guests and clothing and furnishing for personal use. The clothes are embroidered with various motifs such as peacocks, floral buttis, stylized flowers, creepers, putlis (damsels) and parakeets.
