Embroidery - Phullkari

The literal translation of Phulkari is flower craft and this art of embroidery is related to the state of Punjab . Baugh, which literally means garden, is a Phulkari wherein the entire facade is splendidly ornamented by a continuous design through skillful handling of darning. Chobes is another type of Phulkari Embroidery in which the edges alone are ornamented with the center being left plain

The beauty of Phulkari is enhanced by the color of the ground material. The thread used is invariably pure silk. The uniqueness of the Phulkari embroidery is that its long short darning stitches are worked on the wrong side of the cloth. However, the pattern takes shape on the right side.
