ABSTRACT:
Among the various elements in Indian culture, arts are also an important element of culture, art has another importance in Indian culture. At the root of the diversity of art lies the cultural diversity of India.Copper needles have been found by excavating the tombs of the Aryans, the original inhabitants of India, as well as the inhabitants of Mohen-jo-dado, Lothal and Rangpurs etc. The needle has been an important tool for stitching, stitching, hemming and filling clothes. Also, since the three-petaled buti variety is worshiped on the outer garment of the idol excavated at Mohen-jo-dado, it can be inferred to be full Bharata. Kharak people have become famous in Bhavnagar district for their handicrafts. Hence, the saying “Kharak Kanjan Bharat Mein Samani” has become popular in the coastal villages and hamlets of Bhavnagar district. This saying is full of meaning because many aspects of Kharak people's life are also associated with embroidery in one way or another. Especially the various types of animal symbols used in Bharat show the creative style of Kharak women. His sensitive and creative skills are expressed in the 120 different varieties he performs in Chaniyas. Most surprisingly, animal motifs are found in earlier saddle and mochi embroideries. The embroidery of Kharak women expresses their imagination and often gives a pleasant surprise. Some figures are similar to the conceptual combination of two animals, while some figures are also found to be a combination of an animal and a bird. Kharak women are especially known for their colorful and distinctive embroideries. Their embroidery skills are highly appreciated in the region. The special type of animal symbols used in the embroidery of the Kharak people is not seen in the embroidery of other castes. There were no such symbols in the embroidery of these people about 100 years ago. The caste-symbols of the Kharak people are different from the caste-symbols of embroidery of other castes. Their embroidery can generally be divided into four main parts. Like, home decoration patterns, stuffed clothes (dresses), animal decoration, other patterns.
