Zardosi literally means “sewing with gold” and is originally a Persian art form. It involves creating designs with gold, silver and colorful metal threads. The effect of this embroidery is enhanced by the use of sequins, stones, glass and metallic beads, brocades and motifs. These fabrics are generally very expensive due to the intricate work and use of gold and silver zari. (text MvdF)
