Rabaris are usually divided into four group, on the basis of geographical criteria: the Rabaris of Kutch, of Sourashtra, of north Gujarat and of Rajasthan. All Rabari women dress in severe black, always. What renders their clothes richness is their embroidery, which has highly skilled stitches and superb colour combinations. Women decorate the insides of their homes with mud relief and their household textiles like quilts and shopping bags show off the proficiency of their needlework.
