Diversity is India's forte. The breadth of religion, language, and thought within the subcontinent has captures the imagination of travellers and artists (and invaders) since time immemorial. Needless to say, such eclectic variety spills over into its food and temperament and fashion. When it comes to fashion, the sheer variety of fabrics and weaves and embroideries is enough to stun the ethnic fashionista. A wide selection of these embroideries characterises the borders and patches in this section.
From dense zardozi to luxuriant thread work coated in gold and silver (zari), from one-of-a-kind pieces handpicked from Banaras to superbly fashionable mainstream motifs (paisleys, petals, the works), these skilfully embroidered embellishments would enable your outfit to make a glamorous statement. The palette ranges from vibrant pastels to irresistible metallics, and the motifs employed are distinctly Indian.
Q1. How far can embroidery be traced
The technique of embroidery was
first developed in China and the Near East, despite the fact that it is now

Q3. Can you embroider over sequins?
It is necessary to stitch through
plastic while embroidering on sequins; consequently, a sharp needle, such as a
topstitching needle, is advised for this task. It's a lot of fun to embroider
on sequins! Using a large needle to prevent the thread from being eroded by the
needle as it is passed through the stiff plastic may be advantageous in keeping
the thread from being eroded by the needle as it is passed through. To keep sequins
in place while stitching, adjust the height of your embroidery foot on your
machine. This may be accomplished by following the directions in the handbook.
