Details

Our range of clutches have been handcrafted by artisans at an NGO which works with rural artisans in North Karnataka to create gorgeous products with Kasuti embroidery work on them.

These clutches are made in raw silk and hand embroidered with Kasuti work, a folk art form of Karnataka.

The name Kasuti is derived from the words Kai (meaning hand) and Suti (meaning cotton), indicating an activity that is done using cotton and hands. 

The history of Kasuti dates back to the Chalukya period. 
It is believed that the women courtiers in the Mysore Kingdom, in the 17th century were expected to be adept in 64 arts, with Kasuti being one of them. It is also said that the Lambani clan left their traditional home of Rajasthan and settled down in Karnataka and brought the Kasuti craft along with them.

Kasuti work is very laborious and intricate. It involves counting of each thread on the cloth and sometimes involves putting up to 5,000 stitches by hand. The patterns are stitched without using knots to ensure that both sides of the cloth look alike.
