phulkari, the punjab

"the main characteristics of phulkari embroidery are use of darn stitch on the wrong side of coarse cotton cloth with coloured silken thread. punjabi women created innumerable alluring and interesting designs and patterns by their skilful manipulation of the darn stitch. the base khaddar cloth used in western punjab is finer from those of central punjab."
