The Crafts Museum celebrates the glorious crafts heritage of Kutch. Right now, the focus is on the hand embroideries of Kutch, of which there are over forty distinct styles, practised by 12 different communities. All these styles are on display in the current Museum Show entitled The Living Embroideries of Kutch. The highlight of this show is the collection of large-size embroidery panels created by present-day craftswomen. The technical excellence and creativity displayed in these panels is unsurpassed anywhere in the modern world.
