THE STORY
The Vankars or weavers of Kutch weave colorful threads on the loom, with the yarn coming from Bhujodi, Ludhiana, Rajasthan and Ahmedabad. The Vankars are Meghwal migrants who came to Kutch in Gujarat from Rajasthan 500 years ago. The weavers depended on the Rabaris (nomads) for woolen fleece from sheep and on Ahirs (farmers) for cotton. Today, the Vankars of Kutch create their magic in new formats like carpets, bedcovers and table runners, keeping this beautiful weave relevant in a changing landscape. Jaypore’s special collection of home linen and carpets was created by the celebrated weaver Vankar Vishram Valji using cotton and wool yarn. The collection showcases traditional motifs like pagathiyalo, satkhani, vankhyo, bhamri and miri and includes Rabari Ludi embroidered vintage textiles that can be used as wall art. Reflecting Jaypore’s continued endeavor at revival and preservation of India’s traditional crafts, this array is one for the collectors.
