Qasab was set up as an initiative in 1997 to revitalise the embroidery craft of Kutch and reposition its cultural diversity by designing a business model that could not only create sustainable livelihood opportunities for embroidery craftswomen in the remote areas of Kutch, but also become a platform for them to express their creativity. Qasab in Kutchi means craft skill. The Producer Company ensures that the artisans earn a dignified income and these creators of such exquisite embroidery secure monetary benefits that are rightly theirs. Qasab has been formally structured and registered as a Producer Company owned by traditional craftswomen. It is a collective,socio-cultural enterprise comprising 1,200 rural master craftswomen from 11 ethnic communities spread across 62 villages in the arid interiors of Kutch. It has been for the last seventeen years re-interpreting and re-positioning the traditional embroideries of Kutch, building on the styles of each of the communities associated with the producer company.
