Embroidery by professionals

Like most people  I like the look of hand embroidered fabric.

Sometimes I wonder who worked so carefully to make it. Was it done at home? For a loved one? As a piece of art? Or was it work?

Here is a short clip of some work being done in the Sankalan Embroidery House in Jaipur in India. The piece featured is a skirt for a wedding.

This embroidery is done so quickly and with incredible precision. I was fascinated, and hope you will be too.

The photo at the left is of a wedding skirt similar to the one being made in the video and is from HERE. I hope you enjoy that site too.
