Kutch Leather Craft of Kutch
Kutch has undergone various changes in geographical conditions since ancient times, transforming Kutch's terrain into a unique landscape. The Indus River, which is believed to have flowed out of the country from Sindh, changed its flow after the earthquake. Kutch was an important trade route between the Persian kingdom and the Indian subcontinent. Several ethnic groups such as Marwari Meghwals, Rabaris, Maldhari Muslims, and Jats settled in the country and maintained a vibrant culture. The Fakirani Muslim Jats migrated from the Halab region of Iran about 500 years ago in search of new pastures. These migrants turned to grazing cattle and camels, the main source of leather in the region.
