Bhujodi also name of village in India. The hand weavers of Kutch are famed for strength and intricate geometric motifs. Weavers traditionally create indigenous-sourced wool shawls and turbans to bear the harsh winters. Now weavers have incorporated merino wool, cotton and raw silk into contemporary designs. Bhujodi is woven on pit looms because the warp can be yards long. Some 200 weavers in Bhujodi practice the generational craft.
