Embellishments on Lehenga Cholis
The Indian traditional lehenga is a pervasive attire for special events like cultural, festive, religious and wedding occasions. These lehenga cholis are often embellished with golden or silver zardosi work to make beautiful intricate designs of flowers, birds, animals, paisley and other contemporary patterns. Initially limited to gold and silver, these days zardozi work is done using varieties of metals made into flat wires (badla), which is then coiled around cotton or silk thread (kasab) or coiled to form hollow pipes of different thicknesses. Pieces of metal (round, star and crescent being common), are also used with wires, sequins, stones and beads to make outstandingly mesmerizing outfits. Zari-work is often combined with zardosi work to make outlines of patterns, hem border-lines and motif edges which are then filled with zardosi components.
