The Rabari People

The Rabari people are an ethnic group of Indian pastoralists. As some of the last remaining original nomads in this part of the world, they roam the western states of Gujarat, Rajasthan and Punjab, carrying with them a rich array of their traditional Indian heritage.
Traditional Dress

Beautiful Embroidery

Rabari have a very rich cultural past and present. They are known for their unique appearance and distinct dress code. Both men and women wear elaborate jewellery that signifies the family’s wealth. Rabari men commonly dress in white garments known as kediya (a traditional suit jacket), dhoti (a cloth that covers their legs) and a colourful pagadi turban. The women wear long black headscarves and a shawl called a ludi. Its colour and design signify their marital status and position within the community. Although Rabari women generally dress in black, they are famous for their colourful embroidery, known as bharat.
