A tedious form of needlework, Aari Embroidery, with its different forms, is used for creating intricate designs over the garment for enhancing its look. The origin of this intrinsic artwork began from the Mughal era and is still in use worldwide. Here, the Muthia (sharp-edged needle) and Beads are used for giving a creative rise to the chain stitch imprints.
The work of Aari Embroidery is very delicate, and the threadwork is the finest, which is used to enhance the hand embroidery essence. It is by giving the fabric a light-stretch over the wooden frame. Once done, the needle (resembling a crochet needle) is then used for doing the intrinsic Aari work. The one thing that distinguishes the Aari embroidery from others is the motifs (flowers, animals, vines, etc.) that have their use even in contemporary fashion.
Originated in Persia, Zardosi Embroidery is one of the ornate metallic embroideries, which is done using the metallic spring thread, shiny and circular thread of different metallic colors including silver and gold, French wire & metallic bullion thread. Even the beads, sequins, and some precious stones herein play quite a part in embellishing the work, which is difficult to translate using the camera's eye.
Zardozi has its earliest mentions from Vedic literature. Today, with varied techniques, raw materials, and tools, it is used all across India with its 4-fold, Designing, Tracing, Setting Frame/Adda, and Embroidery. From weddings to Bollywood films, this embroidery art has brought back the ornate Zardozi fabrics known for retaining the classic and old-warm charm with the newer designs.
Breathtaking designs are created using different stitches (satin, couching, stem, etc.) as a part of Zardosi embroidery. When the threads needle with the yarn, the zari pieces and the beads (varied color/size and design) get stitched right to make the required pattern. The Zardosi workers, who are perfectly trained through different short-term courses, make these ornamental designs by hands over the fabric's stencilled patterns, with the help of the embroidery material like tikli, nakshi, kora, etc. which altogether gives the end result in a perfect design to be looked at.
