Jagdish Chitara

Jagdish Chitara

Jagdish Chitara is a skilled folk artist from Gujarat, western India, working in the Mata-Ni-Pachedi style of ritual textile painting. Belonging to a traditional and nomadic group of artists from the marginalised Vaghari community, he has been practising this ancestral craft for over 40 years. Jagdish now lives in Ahmedabad, where he strings up his textile art for sale on a pavement. Click here to discover his other Tara Books.

Mata-Ni-Pachedi

Created by the nomadic Vaghari community in Gujarat, this textile art explores myths and stories around their Mother Goddess and local legends. The art is block-printed, painted, and dyed with natural pigments. The colours are always blood red, black and white. Click here to discover other Tara projects with Mata-Ni-Pachedi artists.
