Embroidery, Embroidery art and craft, Embroidery art of Rajasthan, Embroidery Arts & Crafts In Rajasthan, Rajasthan ArtsIn the hamlets of southwestern Rajasthan you won't spot a solitary house without an embroidered toran or frieze hung above the doorway. The women of this region and adjoining Kutch and Saurashtra districts of Gujarat are adept at needlework. Embroidered torans, odhnis, shawls, ghagras (long, flowing skirt) and blouses that come to life with colorful motifs and the sparkle of tiny mirrors or shishas, are a compulsory part of their bridal dowry.

There are also embroidered leather bags, saddles and ethnic footwear (popularly dubbed mojdis or jooties), but these are chiefly the domain of men.
