This embroidery is called a "kor". It is an old art and at one time embroidered free hand. It is a border that is then sewn onto a sari. This is most common in the Zoroastrian community and the saris are handed down through the generations. How do I know this?  Because I am a Zoroastrian  and pieces like this have been handed down in my family as well.
