India is a nation of spectacle where the endless artworks are scattered in every nook and alley of the country from the days of ancient civilization. Different practices and religions have provided us variety of music, literature, art, and craft.
Embroidery can be defined as ‘painting with a needle.’ It expresses self-originated motifs from nature and religion. The artisans embedded their sentiments and experience in their work, which reflects their tales of love and affection towards the craft. We have learned about the creative techniques of embroidery from our ancestors and keeping the traditional method intact we have modernised the art for better. The creation takes time but the result is always remarkable.
Before being a part of the global art, the embroidery was a classic way to convey the silent words for the women. To be mentioned, the traditional Kathi embroidery of the Kathi community of Gujarat is based upon the bold and colorful motifs mingled with each other in unity. Another popular traditional embroidery is the ‘Kantha Stitch’ from Bengal, where the rustic women create the specific design of embellishment. The customary household pursuits and nature has always been depicted in the designs of embroidery.
