Samjhau Devi blue-tick


Samjhu Devi is a celebrated Kashidakari artist hailing from the culturally rich region of Barmer in Rajasthan. With a heritage deeply rooted in Kashidakari, her family has been custodians of this exquisite craft for generations. Her ancestral ties connect her to the Chohtan Tehsil of Barmer, Rajasthan, where she carries forward the legacy of Kashidakari.

Her journey into this intricate art form began under the tutelage of her mother, and she has dedicated over two decades to honing her skills. Her passion and commitment to Kashidakari have not gone unnoticed, as she was awarded the District-level prize in 2015 for her exceptional craftsmanship.

Devi has extended her expertise and generosity by imparting her knowledge to thousands of women in her village, working in collaboration with a non-governmental organization (NGO). This admirable initiative not only empowers women but also ensures the preservation and continuity of this traditional art form within her community.


Kashidakari is the Persian name for needlework. Derived from this name, the Kashida, also known as Kasida, is one of the oldest forms of embroidery that originated in the Jammu and Kashmir region. Kashida work created by using thick, coloured threads and beads to create different attractive patterns. Most kashida motifs inspired by nature, such as vines, birds, leaves and flowers and is one of the defining aspects of this art form. Inspired by this kind of embroidery on textiles, each state or region across Pan India added their flair and distinctive stitch form to this artwork. One of these forms was embroidery on leather footwear, known as the Jutis. Rajasthan, in particular, was a hub where the making of these exquisite shoes first originated.
