Vintage sari from the Kutch Patel community, circa 1930. Extravagntly and finely embroidered and worn at weddings. The wearing style is unique for this group and one edge is always cut in to allow wearing it in this style. The base cloth is dyed in a mineral dye (iron) that is corrosive over the years and therefore there are several spots of damage on the sari.
