Jobat lies in the Alirajpur district of western Madhya Pradesh and is a predominantly tribal area. Though the men here usually dress simple and subtle, the women love to wear bright colors and jewelry. Amongst these, accessories made of beads, cowries and feathers are an all time favorite. Chomal is a type of headgear that was traditionally used as a cushion to carry earthen pots on the head. The more decorated ones are given to the bride in her marriage to wear and on top of it is kept a large pot in which ‘dahej’ or dowry items are put in. The circular base is made by weaving a geometric pattern with wool on a broad band of cane. It has beads or metallic droplets intermittently that tinkle while walking. Rani Bai is the only woman in the village who does chomals of this kind. She uses glass beads, not plastic, and puts in great effort in choosing her colors.
