Description

Spectacular outfit in Ruby Red Silk with Gold Emroidery with a impressive floral motif. A magnificent example of Hindu craftmanship and skill. The Duppata is a long, multi-purpose scarf that is essential to many South Asian women’s suits and matches the woman’s garments. The gahgra is a long emroidered skirt worn as the bottom portion of a Gagra choli. The patterns go all around the skirt, including the back. An extraordinary combination of zari and zardosi, as well as dabka work. The most opulent form of Indian embroidery is the Zari and Zardosi, known since the late 16th Century, brought in India by the might Moghuls.
