Indian Hand Embroidery Techniques
India is renowned for its intricate and detailed hand embroidery. There are over 25 known embroidery techniques and they are all linked to various regions and areas within India. Each technique is slightly different and has been handed down through the generations. The majority of Indian Hand Embroidery techniques involve detailed stitching in bright vibrant colours and invariably evolve into complex geometric patterns.
Our tours and trips to India give you the chance to see lots of these embroidery techniques being used by villagers. If you would like to join us on one of our next trips to India, then take a look at our Textile Holidays to see which tour you would prefer, they are all super trips of a lifetime.
