Chainstitch

This intricate ART known as chainstitch originated centuries ago in KASHMIR. Chainstitch is done by Hook rather than by needle. The hook is referred to as "ART". This art covers a much larger area than needlework in the same amount of time. All the embroidery is executed in a white cotton fabric which is pre-shrunk. Tiny stitches are used to cover the entire area - figures on motifs are worked in striking colors. Stitches ought to be small evensized and neat. Our chainstitch is handmade and made with natural fibres and dyes. It is advisable to CRY CLEAN ONLY.
