Tulsiben's family migrated from Sindh in 1972, an settled in Faradi, where she was born. Her father used to cut diamonds in Surat. Today he is a truck driver on the route from Bhuj to Morbi. Tulsi's mother does housework and embroidery for home use. Tulsiben studied to 7th grade, the maximum she could do in the village. She enjoyed school, especially Hindi, English and science. She stood second in her class, and also won the first prize for memory. After leaving school, Tulsiben learned embroidery from the women in her family. She embroidered for wages for several years, giving the earnings to her family. Tulsiben believes that embroidery should increase. She also loves drawing and painting. Her dream is to take embroidery forward—without forgetting tradition.

Tulsi saw the KRV fashion show twice and, eager to learn, decided to come to KRV. Her father supported the idea. In 2011, Tulsi studied at Kala Raksha Vidhyalaya. Through the KRV course she hoped to receive appreciation. Tulsiben graduated from KRV with the awards for Best Student, and Most Marketable collection. In 2014, she joined the SKV BMA course because she wanted to get full benefit of her work. “My opportunity is in SKV " Design is the key to competition.”

For her 2015 collection inspired by butterflies, Tulsi embroidered fine Chanderi saris and handloom stoles. After presenting to the SKV jury, and participating in a public seminar, Tulsiben received her certificate in Business and Management for Artisans from Somaiya Kala Vidya on 31 January, 2015.
