Ancient Lac Dyeing Practices of Kachchh and its revival by the Vankar Shyamji Valji of Bhujodi


Crafts Council of India sponsored the article for International Natural Dye Symposium held in Hyderabad in November 2006. Most of the information presented here is based on a set of interviews and discussions carried out with various people who have been linked with ‘lac’ directly or indirectly in different parts of Kachchh, namely, traditional dyers and printers or the Khatris, weavers of the woolen textiles the Meghwals, the lac ware artisans of Nirona the Vadhas, the Dhebaria, Wagadhia and Kachchhi Rabari subgroups who were the main consumers of lac dyed textiles in Kachchh.
