RABARI

Hailing from the western fringes of the country, the Rabari art gets its name from the ethnic tribe, the Rabaris of Kutch of Gujarat and Rajasthan. Rabari embroidery has become a shining jewel upon the crown of India’s cultural heritage and a global rage. The vibrant embroidery with its effortless mix of chain-stitched shades of red, yellow, blue, green with sewn in edges of black is further beautified by the unique use of mirrors upon the clothing. Indeed, the use of mirrors that are intricately woven throughout their oodnis and cholis paints a silvery and picturesque image of an anicent culture that has survived the test of time.

Voylla has honoured the traditional Rabari embroidery with thier range of Rabari-inspired jewellery that includes earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings. In the earrings, the jhumkaas are artfully crafted to incorporate the mirrored patterns of Rabari art alongside their playful use of contrasting colours, red and black or yellow and green, upon a silver base. Moreover, the alternate use of silver filigree, bands of colours, and miniscale circular or square-shaped mirrors adds to the vibrant menagerie of aesthetics.
