Little bit about the PHULKARI: Phulkari means flower work. The embroidery is done with floss silk thread on coarse hand woven cotton fabric. Geometrical patterns are usually embroidered on the Phulkaris. Phulkaris were worn by women all over Punjab (india/pakistan) during marriage festivals and other joyous occasions. They were embroidered by the women for their own use and use of other family members and were not for sale in the market. Thus, it was purely a domestic art which not only satisfied their inner urge for creation but brought colour into day-to-day life. In a way, it was true folk art. Our talented instructor will help you create a beautiful blue jay for your home decor.
