VENKATAGIRI

Exquisite needlework of repeated fine chain stitches, worked in multi-coloured silk on a satin or cotton ground, is a timeless craftsmanship of 12th Century India. Flourishing in the states of Gujarat and Sindh under the patronage of the Mughal court, it is a series of unbroken stitches that take the shape of abstract nature and wildlife motifs. The uniqueness of the ”Aar” holed needle that is used to create these stitches, gave the name of what is known as Aari Embroidery.
