Juttis have a great significance in India as the royalties wore them. Handmade Mojaris of Rajasthan and Punjab are very well known. Though the different regions have similar processes and materials, they have different designs, motifs and patterns to distinguish them from one another. To immerse you in a colorful process of Jutti making in Jodhpur, Mohan Lal Gujar awaits you in his artistic studio.
The craft of making hand made Jutti/Mojari is one with a traditional significance as it has been passed down from times long before ours. They are made using leather (from cow, camel buffalo etc. depending upon the region of production) and cotton threads, which are eco-friendly as well as strengthen the leather.
Did you know? Juttis are known by different names in different regions such as Mojari, Nagra and Khussa.
Mohan Lal Gujar is a traditional, extraordinary master craftsman in Leather Jutti (Mojari) craft. He was awarded Rajasthan State Award-2008 and National Merit Certificate in 2011 for his outstanding craftsmanship.
