Our guide brought us to Shyamji’s studio located down a dusty cow-path in Bhuj, the western part of the Kutch, India. Inside the family compound, women spun wool and cotton and dyers tended live vats of indigo buried in earthenware jugs submerged underground. The rhythmic ‘clack clack clack’ of the loom provided the soundscape. We fell in love with the natural dyed colors, especially the deep red field. 4" border in burnt orange, pinkish tan, and greenish indigo. Wrapped fringe in lavender, indigo, pinkish tan and orange.
