Rising from the Ashes


March 2008, Craft Revival Trust

First Published: Textile Forum (4/2003 December)

An earlier article described the edition of block-printing and dyeing textiles in the state of Gujarat in the west of India. The article gave an account of the history of the Khatris, a hereditary caste of dyers, and referred to the development of block-printing in the village of Dhamadka in Kachchh district. This second article focusing on the Khatris recounts their experiences since the destruction of their village by the earthquake that struck Gujarat in 2001.
