Handcrafted embroidery is exclusive and a treasured art since it is painstaking, time consuming, and a lot of care and dedication is put in by ethnic practitioners into the work, resulting in flawless creations of exquisite beauty. Zardozi is metal embroidery done on various fabrics like salwar kameez using gold or silver colour coated copper wire along with a silk thread. Popular since Mughal times , zari thread today, employed for zardozi is Imitation zari using gold or silver coated copper wire or mostly zari made from metallic polyester film. Chikankari is intricate embroidery on salwar kameez and sarees. An art form where, the design or pattern print is transferred to the cloth, the embroidery done on it and the print washed away later leaving only the embroidery behind. Once done only with white thread on plain white fabrics, today it uses coloured threads too. Lucknavi chikankari is the most famous of chikan work in India. Kantha Work, is embroidery work done on salwar suits, with a running stitch on them in the form of motifs. These motifs could be animals, birds, flowers, simple geometrical shapes and scenes from everyday life. It gives the fabric a wrinkled and wavy look and transforms a plain salwar kamiz into an extraordinary creation. Other forms of stitch such as darning stitch, satin stitch and loop stitch are also used. Based on the use of the fabric, Kantha is divided into seven different types.

Bagh is special embroidery practised by women in rural Punjab.
