Embroidered Work Sarees

In a textile and art rich country like India, you can find an array of techniques used to decorate ethnic garments like sarees. Artisans all over India spend years in gaining expertise in different forms of embroidery and make masterpiece garments that are appreciated globally. Saris are still a staple garment for everyday wear as well as a tradition and a style statement flaunted duringcelebrations. For special occasions like weddings, festivals, religious rituals and auspicious days women prefer wearing embroidered saris.

Here are some widely used forms of work used to adorn drapes:

Resham work

Silk and cotton-silk threads in different colours are used to fill motifs and borders on a sari. Chain is the most commonly used stitch of all and is often combined with small beads and sequins to add a little shimmer to the garment. Saris decorated with resham work are suitable for casual occasions like kitty parties, a shipping day out as well as semi-formal parties.

Zari and Zardozi work

Embellishments made with golden and silver threads marked the affluence of the rich and royal ones in ancient times. Today, these shimmery components are used to make flowers, Paisley, peacock and other contemporary patterns over saris that are worn for weddings. A bridal sari is typically bordered with such heavy work. Zardoziwork involves stitching coiled metallic wires, metallic pieces and sequins on the fabric.

Bead, Stone and Cutdana work

Three dimensional components like beads, pearls, rhinestones and cutdana (pipe-like beads) are hand-stitched to make heavy designer-wear saris. Such work is usually done over drapes made with strong fabrics like silk, net and cotton blends because this work tends to make the garment very heavy.

Traditionally embroidery work was done only by hand thus making the task very time consuming and the saris very expensive. However these days a lot innovative and automated have replaced hand work to a great extent. Yet hand embroidery continues to be valued due to its exceptional beauty and is preferred by sari connoisseurs all over the world!
