Beautiful Vintage Zardozi from Agra, India
Zardozi is an elaborate embroidery work which uses varieties of gold threads, spangles, beads, seed pearls, wire, and gota. Originally used to embellish the robes worn by Kings, now adorns our wedding outfits, coats, cushions, curtains, bags, purses, belts, shoes and the list goes on. It is usually done on heavy silk, velvet and satin with stitches like salma-sitara, gijai, badla and katori. Jaipur, Calcutta, Banaras, Agra, and Surat are famous for this work.
Agra’s Zardozi is very unique art of embroidery in three dimensions. The artist first makes free hand sketches of the subject. Then he embroiders in cotton threads over and over till he gets the required thickness and movements. Finally the artists takes fibre from silk threads, twists then together in the shades required for and embroiders with them the particular piece. In the process he creates original unparallel work of art. Read more here.
