Jan '10
Tangalia is a handicraft practiced exclusively in the state of Gujarat in India. This craft is the sole breadwinner of a majority of people living in 26 villages mainly in the district of Surendranagar.

Made from natural fibres such as wool, silk and cotton, tangalia fabrics have a unique kind of motif. Weaving motifs of this art uses a technique called as 'Dana' or 'Bead' work. Dana work is done on these shawls using wool, cotton, silk, acrylic, and viscose while weaving.

This unique craft with motifs made up of danas requires much skill and efficiency. High quality crafts cannot survive without skillful marketing.

With proper aid by the Government and craft organizations quality of this craft can be enhanced, and more market outlets can be identified.
