This Badami Kasuti Themed T-shirt features a minimal design incorporating elements from the Badami region into a symbol every runner will recognize easily – a shoe!
Look closely and you will find these individual elements stand out quite clearly. The most apparent feature in the design is of course the rocky landscape of Badami. The shoe lace eyelets are represented by a stitch design used in Kasuti Embroidery. The history of Kasuti dates back to the Chalukya period and is also Geographical Indications (GI) protected. The women courtiers in the Mysore Kingdom in the 17th century were expected to be adept in 64 arts, with Kasuti being one of them. Read more about Kasuti here – link.
