Hello Mrs. Chandrashekhar, I am Khushi, a student of the Accessory Design department in NIFT, Gandhinagar. This blog post was extremely helpful to me to identify the variety of products made from Moti Bharat that are popular among Gujarati households. Along with a few team members, I’m working on a research document on Moti Bharat. I am having trouble finding out any information on how exactly this craft started in Saurashtra and also the reason for picking jako beads or seed beads over other kinds of beads in the market. Also, what kind of beads were used before the popularization of plastic ? I have yet to come across a single picture or evidence of this craft being made with glass or semi-precious and precious stone beads. For that matter, I have yet to find the use of clay beads too. It would be wonderful if you would be willing to share any resources, reports or documents that would help with our research. If you would like to share any resources, please do reach out via my e-mail id mentioned with this comment. Thanking you in anticipation.
