Dhanau village is situated in the Chauhtan Tehsil of Barmer District and is located about 35 kms. from Chauhtan Township. The women folks of backward classes and Refugee Muslim Families have adopted embroidery as their main source of livelihood. At present they are dependent on job work provided to them by traders and exporters. Woman on an average earns Rs. 5 to 7 per day after working 5 to 7 hours daily. This is not at all a happy situation, because the products made by these women are sold for much more price than what is paid to them. There are approximately 350 artisans working at present. The Embroidery work of Barmer can be classified into 4 different types namely: Simple Thread Embroidery, Mirror Embroidery, Aari Work, Applique Embroidery.
