PHULKARI

It is an embroidery technique very popular in Punjab (state in north India) for decorating shawls, wraps, scarves etc for daily as well as ceremonial uses with flowery surface. Phulkari literally means “flowering”. Shawls covered entirely with heavy phulkari embroidery are customarily given to brides at the time of wedding. Bright coloured silk threads like golden yellow, crimson, red, orange, green and pink are usually used. The motifs like flowers, fruits or birds and other carrying a rich repertoire of the folklore and from everyday life are generally embroidered on the cloth.
