    Zardosi or Zari work

    • Zardozi or Zar-douzi, also Zardosi, work is a type of embroidery in Iran, Azerbaijan, Iraq, Kuwait, Syria, Turkey, Central Asia, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
    • Zardozi comes from two Persian words: zar or zarin meaning ‘gold’, and dozi meaning ‘sewing’.
    • Zardozi is a type of heavy and elaborate metal embroidery on a silk, satin, or velvet fabric base.
    • Designs are often created using gold and silver threads and can incorporate pearls, beads, and precious stones.
    • It is used as decoration for a wide range of applications, including clothes, household textiles, and animal trappings.
    • Initially, the embroidery was done with pure silver wires and real gold leaves. However, today, craftsmen make use of a combination of copper wire, with a golden or silver polish, and silk thread.
