Zari Embroidery – the Artistic hobby of Indian Queens!
The art of Zari has been linked with the Aristocratic Classes in India for a long time and is still one of the most ancient forms of Fabric art, which has been passed down from generation to generation.  It is one of the most renowned&ornate techniques in metal embroidery. Zari is the intricate Art of weaving fine threads of pure gold and silver onto silken fabrics. These fabrics are later used in designer clothing and are not only expensive but look very graceful and stunning. This traditional skill is assumed to have originated in ancient Persia. The art was later brought to India by Persian voyagers in 1700-1100 BC. At the present time, Zari is not made of pure gold or silver – considering the high cost of these metals, but other metal alloys are commonly used to weave these artistic pieces.We have a variety of Wallhangings, Table pieces and other styles of Zari Artwork that will give a regal touch to your living spaces.
