Description

A clutch purse made from a superb piece of Zardozi embroidery.

Zardozi embroidery is beautiful metal embroidery, which once used to embellish the attire of the Kings and the royals in India. Zardozi embroidery work involves making elaborate designs, using gold and silver threads, pearls and precious stones. 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 or simply use thick gold and silver coloured thread.

This example shows typical closely worked embroidery adorned with silver coins and small mirrors.
