About the Craft: In craft history, Suf is explained as one of the most imaginative embroidery techniques, as no sketches or motifs are ever drawn on cloth. Broadly there are 7 types of embroideries done in Kutch ? Jat, Suf, Kharek, Rabari, Aahir, Pakko and Mutwa. Suf being the most fascinating style comes from the region of Megwar, Rajput & Sodha. The designs are largely geometric patterns developed using satin stitch from the reverse side of the fabric. However, the most fascinating thing about Suf embroidery is that there is only one single stitch that has been worked up to formulate a whole set of design and embroidered pattern. The literal meaning of word Suf is neat and clean, just like its literal meaning, the Suf embroidery is also symbolic of cleanliness and manifests neat work. Keen eyesight, knowledge of mathematics and geometry are a must to produce Suf work. Suf motifs include rhythmic patterns from the lives of artisans like peacocks, mandalas, etc.
