Indian / Pakistani Embroidery - TYPES OF EMBROIDERY by Bargello.com.

Embroidery has traditionally enhanced a dress. A look at the various types of threadwork…

As far as the world of design is concerned, embroidery is the backbone of India and Pakistan. It has left an indelible imprint even on international fashion like Escada, Lingara and Ferra have their ensembles embroidered in India. Do we know enough about our own embroideries and how to use them efficiently? The thoughtful use of embroidery can enhance an ensemble, and take it from the mundane to the extraordinary. Some Indian embroideries that can do wonders for an outfit are:
