Patchwork Skirts- Handmade Clothing of India

One of the very popular handmade clothes of India are the patchwork skirts. These pattern skirts are built up with different colored fabric patches in various shapes- straight sided, basic geometric shapes and even random shapes. Patchwork tops and shirts can also be found here though women prefer skirts over patchwork shirts. What is interesting is that these Indian skirts and shirts have unique characteristics of the region where they originated. So, a patchwork skirt made in Rajasthan will have different looks than the banjara skirts made in Gujarat. Have a look at various patchwork skirts of India- some that have originated in the country itself and others that have been adapted from other regions of the world.
