Mukka embroidery is done using fine metallic threads over the fabric to design beautiful patterns and motifs. It is unique to the pastoral tribe of Meghwal community who dwell in the Banni region of Kutch. The mukka signifies stellar constellations which are formed with circular patterns using the metal threads. In Banni, mukka is also used to create garments like chogas, cholas and kanjaras.
