Embroidery or decorative needlework is usually done on fabrics like the salwar kameez and the saree, often of a picture or pattern, to heighten the appeal. It is practised in various forms in different parts of India. Handcrafted embroidery is exclusive and a treasured art since it is painstaking, time consuming, and a lot of care and dedication is put in by ethnic practitioners into the work, resulting in flawless creations of exquisite beauty. Zardozi, Chikan, Kantha, Bagh, Kasuti, to name a few, are some of the more popular forms of handcrafted embroidery used to adorn sarees.

Zardozi is metal embroidery done on various fabrics using gold or silver colour coated copper wire along with a silk thread. Popular since Mughal times , zari thread is employed for zardozi. Real Zari has thread made from gold or silver. Imitation zari uses gold or silver coated copper wire. Today mostly zari is made from metallic polyester film where a polyester core is covered by gold or silver coloured metallic yarn. Chikankari or chikan work is intricate embroidery on fabrics. An art form since the Mughal period, the design or pattern print is transferred to the cloth, the embroidery done on it and the print washed away later leaving only the embroidery behind. Once done using only white thread on plain white fabrics, today it uses coloured threads too based on market demand. Lucknavi chikankari is the most unique and famous of chikan work from among that of the several places in India where this art form is practised. Kantha Work, is essentially embroidery work done on sarees, with a running stitch on them in the form of motifs.

These motifs could be animals, birds, flowers, simple geometrical shapes and scenes from everyday life. It gives the saree a wrinkled and wavy look and transforms a plain saree into an extraordinary creation. Though the running stitch is mostly used for its ease, other forms of stitch such as darning stitch, satin stitch and loop stitch are also used. Based on the use of the fabric, Kantha is divided into seven different types. Lep kantha and Sujani kantha are the popular types. Bagh is a special kind of embroidery practised by women in Punjab. Heavy and exquisite embroidery on sarees especially the lehenga type, where the base fabric is hardly visible, it is mostly done for special sarees for occasions like festivals and weddings. Kasuti is a traditional form of embroidery practiced in Karnataka, India. Kasuti work is very intricate and sometimes involves putting a large number of stitches by hand on traditional silk sarees like Ilkal and Kanjeevaram. Kasuti work involves embroidering intricate patterns like chariot, lamps and conch shells on the fabrics. Locally available materials are used for Kasuti.
