This complex style of embroidery is commonly applied on silk fabric. Ari embroidery is highly stylised and artisans create delicate patterns that boast of their fine skill. It can even be said that each design spills out on fabric like a dreamy poem on paper. The fabric is usually held on a frame and the embroidery is done using a long needle with a hook at the end. You’ll find this on blouses, sarees and other garments and might include the addition of pearls, beads and sequins.
