Mir Woman with Bangles. NP7

Mir Woman with Bangles. NP7

 

Both the Mir and the Rabari tribal women in Gujarat wear upper arm bangles that originally would have been made from ivory but are now plastic inlaid with coloured stones.

They do look somewhat cumbersome. It would seem that people everywhere are fashionistas. This encampment near Dasada was populated mainly with women and children so I assume that the men were out herding their livestock on the Kutch.
