Mutwa Embroidered Blouse


A Kungeree type of Mutwa blouse with embroidered panels for an unmarried girl.


The panels are embroidered flat then sent to the tailor to make up the garment, unsually with prints in the style of patterned fabrics the British brought to India in the 1930s.




The village is known for its tiny mirror glass (shisha) held in place by fine buttonhole stitches.
