GI Status to Gujarat’s Kutchi shawls

The colourful Kutchi shawls, woven with motifs in one solid colour throughout, has been granted the Geographical Indication (GI) tag, a move which is expected to benefit its hereditary weavers in Kutch region of Gujarat. The GI registration of this shawl will convey assurance of quality and distinctiveness — essentially attributed to the place of its origin in a defined geographical locality.

Gabhubhai Vankar, President Kutch Weavers Association (KWA) said that we have been granted the GI tag for our Kutchi shawls, which is famous worldwide. The tag will provide a push to its marketing and also help check the cheap imitation being done in other parts of the nation. .
