A Declining Artform of Kutch

Tangaliya is practised by a handful of weavers in some illages of Gujarat. It is a very special technique where blobs of yarns are inserted by hand while weaving on loom. They appear very similar to French knots. The process is meticulous and slow. Patterns are created by alignment of these dots. Weavers of Tangaliya have declined over the years due to its dextrous nature and relatively low remuneration.

Tangaliya weavers use cotton, kala cotton, indigenous wool as their base material.
